ffmpeg2theora issues(Running OpenSUSE 10.3 on PS3)

Ok, I'm having serious issues with this and pulling my hair out over it. I'm trying to install ffmpeg2theora(0.20) on my OpenSUSE 10.3 Linux. As you can see from the thread title, it's running on my PS3(so it's ppc).

I installed ffmpeg just fine without errors, but ffmpeg2theora just can't seem to find it. This is the error I get:

could not find libavformat libavcodec libswscale libpostproc.
install it
 sudo apt-get install libavformat-dev libavcodec-dev libswscale-dev libpostproc-dev
or update PKG_CONFIG_PATH to point to ffmpegs source folder
or run ./ (for more information see INSTALL)
I tryed apt-get, but I can't find any OpenSUSE sources with those packages. I did the update PKG_CONFIG_PATH, even echoed it to make sure I got it right...still get the same error.
Then I did the last option and still the same thing.

I also get the same error with transcode 1.04.-nevermind about this one, just some other error I can fix easily.
Does anybody know what the problem could be?

Have you checked the required libraries have been actually installed? And where? Maybe you have to export some environment variables before running configure, like LDFLAGS and LIBS. Anyway, binaries packages are available on the Packman repository: the libraries libavformat, libavcodec, libswscale and libpostproc are provided by the package libffmpeg0 (libffmpeg-devel for the static ones). ffmpeg2theora version 0.19 is available, too.

Ok..I downloaded the rpm but libffmpeg requires some stuff. 2 I can not find an rpm for. One of the two is libdc1394 which I downloaded the tar for and compiled and installed it. But ffmpeg can't find it like it can find the ones I used rpms to install. Ideas on what it could be?

EDIT: Ok, I got libdc1394 and libgsm installed and recognized...but ffmpeg won't recognize for some reason...and I checked my libs and it is in the proper place...why is it not recognizing it?

EDIT2(Solved): Sorry for bothering with this topic...thanks for the suggestion for the packman site. Got it working and everything, just have to use rpms instead of trying to compile and install myself for now on.
