I have just reviewed this package. It contains a lot of patent

Well ... would it be possible to build a package that would allow users
to build gap themselves with relative ease if they wanted the codecs

I mean, the editing features are very key .... even for simple GIF and
motion JPG animations... motion JPG sounds like it would be a very
powerful tool, anyway, as I use animations to help people build websites.

You'd be better off asking someone like Pascal (Guru) or one of the other
community repository members...

I xposted this to the opensuse list since it probably will get more attention

I already did a successful build of patent-free gimp-gap. I had to
disable mjpeg as well, as this code is deeply in ffmpeg and it would
take a lot of time to include its support there.

I'll submit it to Factory (after 11.0) and to some OBS repository, where
gimp resides.

However I did not care about configuring of extra features of bundled
ffmpeg. It is an old version (2005) and I would expect problems when you
will try to enable optional features. Porting to new ffmpeg would be
problematic as well, as ffmpeg changed its API several times.
