Yes, it *should* work as described (I tried it once and it worked) but 
I cannot stress enough that rebuilding an unstripped ffmpeg from the 
Debian sources is totally unsupported in Debian Lenny (and will stay 
so in future releases, BTW).

These lines only tell us *that* the build failed, but not *how* it 
failed. Please do also include the error messages that appeared before 
"Error 1" when compiling dsputil.o.

BTW, does it only fail if you compile the static libraries or does it 
also fail if you compile only the shared ones? Please remove "static" 
from FLAVORS in debian/confflags, remove the lib*-dev packages from 
debian/control and try again.
