I'll disagree with these points from what I've seen from what users tend
to be doing and what they are using. But it's a nit.

More importantly, the link to John's builds is wrong. Under "Linux
Static Builds", the link to "64-bit with kernel 2.6.32 and above" should
be http://johnvansickle.com/ffmpeg/

Also, the old # anchors have changed. For example, I provided many links
to download.html#LinuxBuilds for users on various help resources, but
that has changed to download.html#build-linux. We can either revert to
the old names, provide a dummy link using the old names, forget about
the old names and do nothing, or maybe do some redirection magic.

I'd provide patches, but I'm still in internet limbo.
