Is the recent ffmpeg resync causing a build failure?

It is building successfully on f26 on the build slaves. see 

  v30-Pre-511-g35f0ff0a7b was built and installed successfully on f26

On my ubuntu system /usr/share/mythtv/examples has a bunch of source 
code files from ffmpeg. These are not important, they are a side effect 
of the ffmpeg build.

Let us know if you still have a problem. It is possible that pre 484 had 
a problem that is now fixed.
