Please allow me to repeat here that afaict, there is absolutely no
guarantee whatsoever that these configure options disable all
components of FFmpeg that you believe you must not ship!
(Neither for current FFmpeg nor for any past of future version.)

The same is true for --disable-all.

If this does not answer your question, you need professional
legal advice that you cannot get on this mailing list.

You are correct that from a license perspective, it makes absolutely
no difference if you link a library statically or dynamically.

Ianal, this email is not legal advice.
