Building ffms2 from Slackbuilds.org I got

./include/ffmscompat.h:86:77: error: expected ',' or ';' before '{' token
In file included from src/core/indexing.h:26:0,
                 from src/core/audiosource.h:35,
                 from src/core/audiosource.cpp:21:

Building from another source:

checking whether linking with FFmpeg or Libav... FFmpeg
checking whether FFmpeg works... no
configure: error: in `/home/kapeebee/Make-Dir/ffms2/ander/ffms-2.17-src':
configure: error: cannot link with FFmpeg

The problem turned out to be a wrong (in this case too old) version of ffmpeg.
