--disable-mmx is a very bad idea, if you have problems 
without it, please report them!

Please understand that it is not legal (copyright-wise) 
to distribute a FFmpeg binary that is compiled against 
x264 and libfaac or libfdk at the same time.
(x264 is GPL and you cannot fulfill the rules of the 
GPL for faac and libfdk because they are not free 

For mono and stereo the native aac encoder should at 
least produce acceptable quality.
