Ffmpeg-php install problems


ok so i followed the instructions at the dreamhost wiki to install ffmpeg-php (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Php-ffmpeg#install) now everyting works fine untill i get to this

step: make

when i do this step i get this error:
*** No targets specified and no makefile found.

can anyone help me out with this problem?


It sounds like the Makefile was never generated from the configure script. When you ran ./configure did you notice any errors in the output? Did it talk at all about generating any makefiles?

It might be helpful to us if you can post the last 20 or so lines of output from the configure script so that we can try to see what went wrong.


when the ./configure command is run this is what comes up:
