Well, the method is not particularly polished as I use it for my own
system only :). I download FFmpeg 0.7.8 and extract it wherever and
compile as follows:

./configure --prefix=/home/andrew/source/ffmpeg_old/usr \
              --enable-gpl \
              --enable-version3 \
              --enable-nonfree \
              --enable-postproc \
              --enable-pthreads \
              --enable-libfaac \
              --enable-libmp3lame \
              --enable-libopencore-amrnb \
              --enable-libopencore-amrwb \
              --enable-libvpx \
              --disable-ffmpeg \
              --disable-ffplay \
              --disable-ffserver \
              --disable-doc && \
make && make install-libs install-headers && make distclean

You can alter options as you see fit, these options are designed so I
can also compile SoX and vlc against the same FFmpeg libraries. Then I
add the following to Transcode build, before ./configure::

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/home/andrew/source/ffmpeg_old/usr/lib/pkgconfig"

This is a little rough and ready and could very easily be improved. It
is for my own usage, not really for distribution to slackbuilds-users :).
Mostly it is useful if you are, like me, running the cutting edge
FFmpeg as well and need an older version to build other applications against.

You think that's air you're breathing now?
