Hmm, yet another strange build problem on arm. I'm not sure why you have
a static library in /usr/local...
And I'm not going to recommend that you try to fix it because it's very
likely that the libav version is going to be too old anyway.
So the best course of action is probably to just build with:
./setup.py build --without-dev_avcodec2 --without-csc_swscale
And see where that gets you.
Hopefully you won't have to turn off too many things to get a working build.
