No, it never did so. Downloading without user confirmation is unacceptable.

Get an ffmpeg git checkout there via whichever method is most convenient,
there is no need to have configure do it.
Its purpose is to avoid making the process any more difficult than previously
to new to MPlayer SVN or otherwise less advanced users, if you know how
to build a spec file I'd expect that you can think of a better way of
getting FFmpeg in ffmpeg/ that having configure do it.

No, changed.
