I just checked the official SVN and this behaviour has changed (again) 
since there is much more code to handle the enabling/disabling of 
decoders (and others). You probably never looked at the configure script 
we are talking about (based on some older FFMPEG SVN). So check yourself 
before pointing fingers around.

Now you can probably enlighten me on how a codec is not enabled by 
default if allcodecs.c contains a line like this:

(again, a line we don't have since we use an older FFMPEG SVN base)
