The problem is that the ffmpeg library, which librtk uses to make movies,
doesn't build on many platforms (including Solaris), resulting in this error:

I'll put a note on the FAQ about this issue, since several people have
The short-term solution is for you to pass '--without-libavcodec' to librtk's
'configure' script before building. That way ffmpeg won't be built. Of
course, you won't be able to make movies of Stage simulations.
The long-term solution is for us to either make ffmpeg more portable or select
a different animation library to use. Stay tuned.
