I may be mistaken, but as I understand the GPL, if you're not distributing 
anything (building for your own use), there are no license problems with 
mixing GPL and non-free/encumbered/proprietary components. That means you 
could use -enable-nonfree and -enable-gpl at the same time (I can't actually 
try that at the moment).

If you -do- want to distribute ffmpeg, then you simply can't mix GPL and 
proprietary/non-free parts.
