Compiling FFMPEG Manually


Has anyone here compiled FFMpeg manually before?
Basically i want to compile ffmpeg with some of its dependencies in a particular location. .eg. /opt/apps.

when i compile its optional libraries like faac, there's no problem.
Everything is put into /opt/apps, including the header files (/opt/apps/include).

But I cant seem to get ffmpeg to detect them.
I tried configure --help in ffmpeg, but i cant seem to find a solution for this.

Anyone experienced this before ?
