I am trying to build ffmpeg on my Windows XP machine but all my efforts have failed. I have read many forums and blogs but I am unable to crack how to do. Can anyone please suggest a crisp way of doing this.

Lastly, here is the error that I get
unterminated call to function `foreach': missing `)'.  Stop.
. I have also downloaded make.tar. When I run the make command on make.tar, I get the following msg:

$ make install
'fail' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 255
