I can understand this. Your ldd ouput looks very, hm let's call it 
interesting ;-)

Both libs?

Try to do a "make uninstall" in /usr/src/ffmpeg-checkout-2008-07-07, now 
take a look inside /usr/local/(bin|lib|lib64), is there anything ffmpeg 
specific? Now Uninstall the ffmpeg rpm's and install them once again 
(don't install libavcodec51-0.4.9svn-20080906.pm.0, shouldn't be needed 
by any package).

Now use ldd once again.

If the problem isn't solved, tell me, what SUSE-Version you use and what 
architecture the packages are, you've installed (i586, i686, x86_64 or 
ppc). I have to take a look inside this package myselfe...
