What OS are you using ? Mandriva ? If mkvtoolnix is provided by your OS 
you'd better use the related libebml & libmatroska. Although, I might be 
wrong but, mkvmerge might be using libmatroska and libebml with static 

Anyway, it seems you'd better compile all 3 packages by yourself to 
avoid such problems.

The other option is to get precompiled RPMs:
