No, a link to the *exact* sources that you used to 
compile FFmpeg are sufficient. ("... accompany ...")
Please understand that usually, this link points to 
a website controlled by you and not to "ffmpeg.org".

I wanted to write:
"Why do you think isom support mjpeg?"
but it actually is supported.
Do you have a mjpeg-in-isom file that is played 
by QuickTime?

IANAL, please read the GPL and the LGPL to know the 
exact requirements for binary distribution.
