"The Fraunhofer FDK AAC and OpenSSL libraries are under licenses which
are incompatible with the GPLv2 and v3. To the best of our knowledge,
they are compatible with the LGPL."
Both those libraries are in EXTERNAL_LIBRARY_NONFREE_LIST but at
present, when configuring with license LPGL, they can be included (I've
only checked configure with FDK AAC enabled).
With this patch, looks like that won't be possible. Maybe these two libs
can be moved to a separate list, say, "EXTERNAL_LIBRARY_LGPL_ONLY_LIST"
and /configure adapted.
