#482 closed defect (fixed)

make fails if --disable-swscale, as cmdutils.c invokes sws_get_class without #if CONFIG_SWSCALE

(I'm building from git to debug some QCELP audio playback problems.)
From "Get FFmpeg" I downloaded git snapshot. I don't need all of ffmpeg so I tried

% /configure --prefix=/home/skierpage/src/ffmpeg --disable-swscale --disable-avfilter --disable-network
% make

This errors with

cmdutils.o: In function `opt_default':
/home/skierpage/src/ffmpeg-HEAD-9a9ceb8/cmdutils.c:314: undefined reference to `sws_get_class'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [ffprobe_g] Error 1

I'm pretty sure the problem is sws_get_class() is defined in libswcale, so if that's disabled with --disable-swscale , then cmdutils.c won't compile. Other invocations of sws_ functions are guarded with #if CONFIG_SWSCALE. A dumb patch that allows make to complete and doesn't immediately crash ffprobe is

I hope this helps. Thank you for ffmpeg's massive AV format support.
