ffmpeg compiled again for Pi2


I recently compiled ffmpeg for the Raspberry Pi2 and Pi3, reported on my blog:
http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00436

However, I wanted to go through the exercise again, and link Omxplayer and VLC against the same ffmpeg libraries.
I have succeeded with this, but starting at step one, here is how I compiled ffmpeg today.

Firstly, I installed some DEBs that will be needed for Omxplayer:
cpp-4.8 g++-4.8 gcc-4.8 gcc-4.8-base libasan0 libboost1.58-dev libcloog-isl4 libgcc-4.8-dev libssh-4 libssh-dev libstdc++-4.8-dev

ffmpeg will only need libssh out of that lot. Though, I do wish they would update to using libssh2.

I compiled ffmpeg 3.2, which requires SDL2, so installed these DEBs:
libsdl2-2.0-0 libsdl2-dev libsdl2-image-2.0-0 libsdl2-image-dev libsdl2-mixer-2.0-0 libsdl2-mixer-dev libsdl2-net-2.0-0 libsdl2-net-dev libsdl2-ttf-2.0-0 libsdl2-ttf-dev libsndio6.1 libsndio-dev

Then configure, compile and install. Note, I took out all hardware acceleration, including OpenMAX, VAAPI and XVMC, however, left the paths into /opt/vc in case want to bring back OpenMAX acceleration:

# make -j3
# new2dir make install

That's it. Next step is compile Omxplayer.
