multimedia/ffmpeg crashes with libfaac, works with libfdk_aac

Since the default ffmpeg AAC encoder is libfaac, this:
$ ffmpeg -i 01.wav 01.m4a
gives a segfault. GDB shows

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00000008068ba7cf in AACQuantize () from /usr/local/lib/

If I use libfdk_aac however,
$ ffmpeg -i 01.wav -c:a libfdk_aac 01.m4a
Results in proper conversion. Just FYI.
