To me that looks like a mismatch :)

Not knowing much at all about Debian, I would assume that if you
installed a packaged version of ffmpeg, it'd install into /usr,
not /usr/local.

Try installing the devel package for your ffmpeg (ffmpeg-dev?) and see
if it installs the headers into /usr/include/ffmpeg
(not /usr/local/include/ffmpeg), point the dxr3 Makefile at those
headers and try rebuilding.  Possibly also remove the other set of
ffmpeg headers (and maybe libs too) from /usr/local before trying that.

There have been numerous reports about no sound with the dxr3 plugin,
all of which (IIRC) have eventually been tracked down to ffmpeg
libraries/headers mismatches.
