If it assures you, I'm Upstream Release Manager for both Libav and
FFmpeg  :-)

I'm happy that Fabian agrees with me. I'll see if I can propose some
configure switch for 0.7, but TBH, the trick with building the libraries
in different flavors is a very Debian specific trick that cannot be
upstreamed easily. Nor am I convinced that this should go upstream.
