OK, compilation successful.  After having spent so much time trying to
rebuild from available srpms, I was not going anywhere -- none of the
srpms tried worked.  Turns out the good old make; make install
strategy was the way to go.  This is what I did:

(1) Download the tar file from sourceforge: avidemux_2.4_preview2.tar.gz
(2) tar xvzf avidemux_2.4_preview2.tar.gz
(3) cd avidemux_2.4_preview2
(4) make -f Makefile.dist
   (If you get an error that says, 'AM_GNU_GETTEXT' not found, yum
install gettext-devel)
(5) make
If no error, install it as root
(6) make install
   (Default is to install into /usr/local)

Good luck,
