This is a matter of taste. FFmpeg has that policy, but MPlayer, on the other
hand, has the policy "if it is present on the system, enable it". I believe
most programs adopt the same policy as MPlayer for features that can not
normally cause problems when unused.

By the way, I would very much like (but not enough to start working on it
right now, sorry) to have the "--enable-auto" option to enable
auto-detection for all external libraries. Amongst other things, that would
allow MPlayer's configure to call FFmpeg's instead of reimplementing it.
