I think there is a misunderstanding; I meant the link fails because the
tool requires the -lm (because of the sin() dep), it's not an issue with
the library (libm is indeed in the NEEDED field of the libav*).

So we can unconditionally add -lm in LDFLAGS for decoding_encoding and
muxing? François seems to raise a portability issue about this.

Another solution might be to make use of lavfi/aevalsrc instead, but it
might uselessly complicates the examples.
