The project located here https://sourceforge.net/projects/ffmpeg-hi/ is
distributing build with --enable-nonfree and libfdk in violation of our
license.  Running strings and grep on the executables show
> --enable-static --disable-shared --enable-gpl --enable-nonfree --enable-zlib --enable-bzlib --enable-libfreetype --enable-fontconfig --enable-libass --enable-libfaac --enable-libfdk_aac --enable-libmp3lame --enable-libvorbis --enable-libtheora --enable-libxvid --enable-libx264 --enable-libx265 --enable-libbluray --enable-runtime-cpudetect --disable-debug --enable-w32threads --cpu=i686 --extra-libs=' -L/usr/local/lib -lx265 -lstdc++' --extra-cflags=-static --extra-ldflags=-static
> libavutil license: nonfree and unredistributable

(I should really put this on trac but I am too lazy to make an account.)
