Good point.  Jake: It looks there have been some API changes since the 
wheezy build of librtmp was made, so always use SHARED= (or SHARED=no if 
that's more memorable) with your make command.  That will statically 
link your version of librtmp so your build of rtmpdump won't try to load 
the system version.  Or better yet:

$ sudo apt-get install rtmpdump

You know you want to.
