Perfect as in :

- Works for sure

- You pick only what you need and nothing more

- easyer to follow if you configure correctly your cvs


- you may end up with different ffmpeg linked together if you are
developing a library yourself and got linked against a program that uses
ffmpeg too (ok, that was/is cinelerra and has its degree of nonsenses

- no other issues that come to my mind.
