Its there Rick, one of the first things I checked.

But, the is in /usr/lib, and the makefile is looking 
in /usr/local/lib:

gcc -D_REENTRANT -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -I/usr/local/include -Wall -Wmissing-declarations -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/opt/gmerlin/lib -o .libs/bgavdump 
bgavdump.o  ../lib/.libs/ -L/usr/local/lib /usr/local/lib/
make[1]: Leaving directory                    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 
Compilation in gmerlin_avdecoder failed

So I made a softlink, putting the link '' in /usr/local/lib & we'll 
see if that makes any diff.  The script takes about a half hour 
though.  Thanks for standing by me so far.

The LDFLAGS is an @LDFLAGS@ alright, but I could not find the macro definition 
in any of the Makefile.* stuff, so I made the link instead.
