[Ffmpeg-devel] [RFC] dlopen vs linking for external libraries

This topic just came up while talking with Mans on IRC..

Currently we have two different methods of integrating external
libraries: dlopen or (dynamic) linking.  Or rather some libs offer one
option or the other or both.  libfaad supports both variants, liba52
just dlopen after my last changes, the others just linking.

So the question is if we should drop dlopen or not.  Mans is in favor, I
tend to agree.  In any case we should be consistent.
