I haven't looked, but I think you probably built the master branch in
that case since those are the current names of the XvMC libraries. To
build the xvmc branch for intel:
git checkout origin/xvmc
<build as before>
You might need to "make clean" before. Since you've already gotten
everything set up, it should be quick to just reinstall the intel
