This is a compromise we agreed on with James.
This way, we make it rather complicated to reenable the encoders. It is
way more easy to just go to ffmpeg.org and fetch the latest sources with
all encoders enabled than fiddling around with the ffmpeg sources
distributed by debian and find out how to reenable them again.
