362 version of FFmpeg into itself. Dynamically linking to a system installed
363 FFmpeg makes MPlayer and Mencoder about 9MB smaller. If MPlayer exhibits
364 unstable behavior linked to a system installed FFmpeg, try recompiling MPlayer
365 without this option (it is always more thoroughly tested with the included
