This is abnormal. SWRESAMPLE LIBRARIES from ffmpeg 5 must be
available. Check your ffmpeg 5 install, especially the ffmpeg-devel

...It's a bad idea to compile digiKam with ffmpeg 5. digiKam code is
not yet finalized (even if it compiles) and playing video will not
work. Use the ffmpeg 4.x LTS instead.
