Why should that be?

Ie, if a license issue applies to the FFmpeg project 
(in this case a license issue that applies to one of 
the libraries Brad wants to use, namely libx264 which 
is - under normal circumstances - available under the 
terms of the GPL, which makes FFmpeg linked to libx264 
automatically GPL) not apply to the Zeranoe builds 
that are made from FFmpeg sources?

Please do not top-post here.
