While img_convert() has been declared deprecated for a while, it
seems to have finally been disabled in the version installed by
ffmpeg-devel. This will obviously impact any program using that
function, which has been superseded by (the much more complex)

I know that this breaks multimedia/dvbcut, but that is a C++
program, and AFAIK the ffmpeg developers want to drop support for
C++ in one of the next versions, anyway.

This leaves me wondering, if we could keep the last working
ffmpeg as ffmpeg-old for programs like dvbcut, that rely on it.
