Peter, I was aware that we patch ffmpeg, so why not have the patches
ffmpeg in ../lib/$OS/ffmpeg?, we have a linux lib dir but its not been
used for ages.
CMake does use the systems ffmpeg, but since its not used for release
builds nobody pays much attention.

I'll change my vote for +1 for a patched ffmpeg in lib and add
../lib/linux/ffmpeg, the patches can stay in blenders source tree.
