[Libav-user] Building with purchased libraries

Our company is in process of purchasing binary version of x264 library from
the legal representative of the library owner. This means we are not
required to open the sources of our application.

In addition we would like to use ffmpeg as part of the project but to use
x264 library, we have to use "--enable-gpl" flag.
This makes the project eligible for opening all sources under GPL.

Our question is how do we build ffmpeg in a way not to be eligible for GPL?
E.g. can we fix the build system not to use --enable-gpl parameter and
release ffmpeg part under LGPL?

Thank you.
