Mplayer and Gstreamer include ffmpeg sources. They are not in their CVS repository but a snapshot is added during the release process.
Transcode only check for ffmpeg headers and static libraries.
There are several other apps. I will take a look a them.

This is surprising because libavcodec and libavformat are static libraries so once the binary is generated there is no more dependency.
