How? Are there Linux binaries with everything switched on?

Creating a build environment for ffmpeg can be very difficult. Creating a  
build environment for ffmpeg that supports a wide variety of third-party  
libraries is a major computing project requiring expert skills.

I mean, seriously, I assume linux has some sort of standalone executable  
program format - why is there no equivalent of ffmpeg.exe? The windows  
binaries end up being many, many megabytes with everything included, but  
the point is: they actually work, whereas linux, as we've seen, causes  
endless problems in this regard.
