[FFmpeg-user] use of x264 "within ffmpeg" in a non GPL application [legal]?

I've gotten this question a few times:

If somebody is building a proprietary app, which uses "ffmpeg.exe"
underneath (for example for streaming), where ffmpeg was compiled with
--enable-gpl and includes x264:  What's your take on this? Should it
be "allowed" license wise?
