That patch will probably work with the above version combination, but it
will also result in breakage with mjpegtools < 1.6.3.

The root cause is that you're not using compatible (well, or "same
generation") versions of mjpegtools and y4mscaler.  If you have
mjpegtools >= 1.6.3-RC1, you should be using y4mscaler 8.1, not 0.6.2.

I've just (re-)uploaded it for FC3.   Note also that I'm currently
slowly rebuilding and adjusting everything for FC4 and purging the FC3
