Quotes are not necessary, i.e. it _is_ smarter.

Here is what I see in my 'ffmpeg' 'configure' screen output:

address@hidden:~/junk> tail -2  
License: nonfree and unredistributable
Creating config.mak and config.h...

This is because I chose to use non-free codecs with it, even though it
itself is LGPL.

So, the "License: nonfree and unredistributable" note is absolutely correct, 
and I am _not_ distributing built by myself 'ffmpeg'.

I did absolutely no hacking of 'ffmpeg' - the ability to choose non-free
codecs comes with 'configure' to be found in the tarball, the built-in
'configure' help message says:

     22   --enable-nonfree         allow use of nonfree code, the resulting libs
     23                            and binaries will be unredistributable [no]
