Installing mplayer's libavcodec, libavutil?

Although no official release of ffmpeg exists, the code bunlded with the
occasional mplayer (pre-)releases is, probably, as close as it gets to being
a release. Ffmpeg project is hosted by mplayerhq.hu and they appear to have a
rather close relationship...
A number of other ported packages bundle their own versions of ffmpeg of
different stages of staleness.
Our official port ffmpeg-devel is not only stale, but also broken on non-i386.
Perhaps, the libavcodec and libavutil already built by mplayer can be
installed by the port, so that other ports can LIB_- or BUILD_-depend on it?
The patch for the mplayer-port itself would be rather simple -- is anyone
against the idea in principle?
