I recently checked out the source for  mfd/mfe from svn rev. 8504

I am having a small problem getting past a certain part of the compile for
mfd and was wondering if anyone could either:
A) point a better resource to help me in compiling this app.
B) point out what I am doing wrong so that I can progress past this error
I am running FC3 atrpms build of mythv with the latest upgrades from YUM.
I went looking to make sure that the avcodec.h file was in the proper place
from the description of the file that exits out below and found it at the
following spots:

Below is the problem, full error message is available upon request.  I am
more than happy to wait until this is release as stable rpms however I would
like to try to solve this issue just to prove I can do it to myself.

Many thanks to all of you who donate their time and sanity to this project,
I know myself and my family (who all have mythboxes) appreciate the effort
you put into this project.
