No, not yet.

You'll have to download the Debian ffmpeg source package (apt-get 
source ffmpeg), rebuild the source tarball 
(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=externalcodecs debian/rules get-orig-source) and 
then build the binary packages (DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=externalcodecs 
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc).

Hope that helps for a while.
