I am facing 2 issues with '0.7.1' release on Windows. I didnt face these issues with 0.6.3 release.

When I try to build 0.7.1 using './configure --prefix=/d/projects/ffmpeg/build_temp/ --enable-memalign-hack --enable-shared --disable-static' option, the build stops displaying yasm not found, use --disable-yasm for a crippled build

When I proceed with an extra --disable-yasm option, the build is successful. But runtime The program can't start because pthreadGC2.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem error message is displayed and the execution stops.

Issue 1 should be obvious: FFmpeg performance will be significantly lower if you don't have yasm installed at build time, so you have to explicitly confirm that you want such a build.

Issue 2: pthreads get auto-detected if they are installed (they come with the default mingw installation), you have to provide the missing dll for such a build (copy /mingw/bin/pthreadGC2.dll into the same directory as ffmpeg.exe), if you want to build without pthreads, pass --enable-w32threads to configure.
