from README...

* libpostproc and libswscale are distributed under the GNU General Public
  License, see the file COPYING.GPL for details. Their compilation and use
  in FFmpeg is optional.

libswscale is LGPL now, no? Can the README be updated?


* The file libavcodec/ac3dec.c is distributed under the GNU General Public
  License.  In order for (E-)AC-3 decoding to work you need to enable GPL

What's left to do? Is this documented somewhere? Would be nice to have
AC-3 / LGPL decoding.
