If you're going to make such assertions please back them up. My
research into dynamic linking of (L)GPL libraries finds multiple
explicit claims that distribution of the library source code is _not_
required if I haven't modified the original, according to LGPL section
6, specifically 6b.

ffmpeg legal page).
