I see you are following the guide.  What version of zoneminder are you
trying to install?  1.23.3 will work with ffmpeg 11879, but I had to use a
more current version to get 1.24.1 to complie.  I'm using version 17697.
Its just what was available the day I re-installed 1.23.3 after I have
problems with 1.24.1.

Do a search for my posts "tdukes" on the forum.  I posted some steps I used
so I could go back to them if needed.
