Ticket #65 (closed enhancement: invalid)
Ambiguous --enable-non-free option

I've been recently using FFmpeg for a personal project and I built FFmpeg without --enable-nonfree and --without --enable-gpl, thinking that the resulting libraries could be freely used. But I just found out I was wrong.
So the point is.. to me the --enable-nonfree option is ambiguous and I believe that something more explicit should used. From what I understood, this option only enables the use of copyrighted code, and therefore isn't redistributable.
Thus I would suggest something like --enable-nonredistributable rather than the current name.
