According to https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/AAC, you’re better off with libfdk_aac anyway.

If compiling libraries is a challenge, and you on a mac, I suggest using homebrew.  It’s an easy way to install all the dependencies, then you can build ffmpeg as desired.  Or you can use homebrew to install ffmpeg directly, and I think there are ways to specify what libraries you want with it.

For instance, this command installs all these dependencies.
brew install libogg libvorbis libgsm libvpx fdk-aac lame libass orc sdl yasm pkg-config x264 x265
It doesn’t get much easier than that.
