You wrote that you are searching for "a configure param to
disable all except free codecs" which implies that you make a
difference between "free" codecs like vorbis and other codecs
I suspect everybody here disagrees with such an assumption (or
they wouldn't work on or with FFmpeg).
If you think that this difference exists, FFmpeg is not the
right tool for you: While you can disable certain codecs,
there is neither a guarantee that disabling a codec disables
all algorithms related to that codec, nor is there a
configure switch that disables all algorithms used in FFmpeg.
(Not even --disable-all)
If you need a guarantee that certain algorithms are not used
in your binary distribution of FFmpeg, only you lawyer can
give it to you (as said, he has an insurance!), if you don't
need such a guarantee, you don't need to disable anything.
