libavcodec can be found in the following packages:

Please see the INSTALL file in the top directory of the
transcode sources for more information about building
transcode with this configure script.

I do not have any GTK1 or GNOME1 packages installed, only GNOME2/GTK2.
Thus I do not have gnome-config present on this system.
I am not really sure why configure script attempts to call it instead of
using pkg-config.
$ pkg-config --list-all | fgrep libavcodec
libavcodec                  libavcodec - FFmpeg codec library

My system is 6.3-RELEASE amd64 with very recent ports tree (<24h).
