[FFmpeg-user] How to build for static ffmpeg executable

Thanks Carl for the heads up.  I am fairly new to ffmpeg in general and have a need to 
add a new protocol that supports reading video files that our application encrypts usinga aes-ctr algorythm.  So not knowing any better, I grabbed the build flags that are 
displayed when running the latest ffmpeg from the binary distribution.  I have eliminated 
about half of those already but I wasn't sure about these.  I didn't add them becauseI thought I needed them, I was just trying to replicate the distribution version.

These options have no effect, they do not do 
what you seem to believe they do. I suggest 
you remove them.
