Bug#370599: ffmpeg: does not support AMR codec

opencore-amr has been accepted into the archive and has even entered testing. 
The option to enable opencore-amr for ffmpeg has not been activated yet due to 
concerns that ffmpeg would result in having to be distributed under the GPL-3. 
An ffmpeg library under GPL-3 license would mean other projects would have to 
be GPL-3 or some GPL-3 compatible license.

So are we going to enable the option to build with opencore-amr support? If 
so, what are we going to do about other programs depending on ffmpeg?
