Allright, how about this: For the sake of consistency, let's rename 
the "risky" keyword to "internalencoders" and introduce 
"externalcodecs" for linking against the external libraries.

Furthermore I suggest to comment out the amr?b packages from the 
externalcodecs, because they result in unredistributable ffmpeg packages.

That's a set of two variables which covers quite the whole scope of 
codecs that you might want to build with ffmpeg.
