Sorry, ffmpeg package not installed, so sox ebuild need ffmpeg as dependency.
Comment 3 Richard Grenville 2012-03-10 04:40:07 UTC
ffmpeg devs removed the deprecated function av_open_input_file() on Fri, 27 Jan 2012, but media-sound/sox's configure script checks for it, so media-sound/sox probably fails in configure phase with ffmpeg-9999. Downgrading to <=ffmpeg-0.10 should help.;a=commitdiff;h=2fb7501938b7103624c9bef740ca498258cacdab

I have this error on sox-14.3.2.  As a work-around I'm compiling this with the  -ffmpeg use flag... and nuking OpenShot (I never use it).
Comment 5 milan hodoscek 2012-05-27 23:49:05 UTC
This happens now with ffmpeg-0.11 which is in portage for ~amd64
