no, please calm down, noone asked for that, michel just couldnt find the
source and asked where it is
about LGPL compliance, i have no reason to belive that rockbox wouldnt
comply, source is there, even if some people failed to find it
simply googling for "rockbox source" and using the first link works
the source contains a COPYING file in the directory of ffmpeg which
IMO qualifies as informing the user about his rights under the LGPL

PS: yes we of course would be very happy to receive clean and nicely
(per feature) split patches from rockbox
