Well, I look after that, I think I have different versions at different 
locations, maybe because of trying more then one version, see below ...

Hm, recompilation would be no problem, but I'm not sure about 
ffmpeg-dev, as I can't find such a package. Do you know a filename of 
such a header file, to make my search easier? If it's about 
libavcodec/utils, then it could be one the following packages I 
installed in different steps, I would suggest libavcodeccvs-dev, which 
would mach the version of ffmpeg (see above) best - what do you think?

Well, I'm glad to here that, because solution would be in reach then! :-)

If you need more information about packages installed please ask - as 
soon as I know what to install, I would first remove ffmpeg and 
libavcodec/utils (if these are the necessary packages), then reinstall 
and then recompile the dxr3-plugin with the appropriate Makefile.
