    2 things:
    git doesn't come with OS X
    it should have been "sudo make install" without the quotes
    Any reason why you can't just download the OS X binary?
    Download ffmpegX for Mac - DivX/MPEG-1/MPEG-2 encoder and more. MacUpdate Mac Video Software Downloads
    Looks like you might be trying to compile x86 source code.

    Or, if you have the need to compile it from source, use something like MacPorts to ease the process for you.
