Solution one (not very good):
Move the files from /usr/include/ffmpeg/libavformat to /usr/include/ffmpeg
Same for libavcodec.

Solution two (better IMO):
Since you have the sources, edit xjadeo.c and replace the line
#include <ffmpeg/avcodec.h>
#include <ffmpeg/libavcodec/avcodec.h>
(same for the other includes that don't work).
It still may fail to work, depending on how the .h files from ffmpeg (and
the files of xjadeo) do their include.

Solution three: throw away debian, make your own distribution (time to
go back to the roots, too much distrib kills the distrib) (ahem).

Hope it helps,
