FreeBSD Port: ffmpeg-0.7.13_4,1

ffmpeg requires the permission to execute files in /tmp which is rather
odd, not to mention that users shouldn't be allowed to run things in /tmp.

This is a problem on user systems because /tmp and ~/.. should be mounted
nosuid noexec for obvious security reasons.  When compiling or updating
ffmpeg this imposes the need to go single-user which could be a problem in
production environments.

This is probably something that I could bring up with the development team,
though you may be more able to appreciate and value my point towards them.
