The migration of ffmpeg from svn to git caused a change in the way the ffmpeg code is checked out. The configure script now uses git to check out the code. However, it checks out ALL ffmpeg history, which is not needed. The checkout should be limited to only the most recent files. This will save time and bandwidth for the end user. Developers can always check out the full ffmpeg history on their own. Use the --depth option to git clone like so:

git clone --depth 1 git:// ffmpeg

Attached patch modifies the configure script to limit ffmpeg checkout to depth of 1.
