Indeed. Thaks for that link!

checking [2], reveals that I'm partly wrong. There is an in-source copy
of ffmpeg, that there is an option 'use_system_ffmpeg=1' passed to the
buildscript. This indicates that I indeed missed that upstream now
considers this. Still, I also note that a library
out/Release/obj.target/third_party/ffmpeg/libffmpeg.a is being
built. also note the following changelog comment:

   * Ops, libavutil50 is not yet in Debian, removed from depends (Closes: #580769)                                                        
     - update debian/control                                                                                                              

I can only assume that the functionality to link and use the system
ffmpeg is severely broken. One more reason to have bug #580947 at
severity serious.
