Maybe I was too terse: the version of ffmpeg supported by the kodi
script maintainer is older than the one provided by the script to
compile kodi.  The comment in the build script is now misleading.  It is
NOT that SBo ffmpeg is too old, rather that kodi devs REQUIRE a
ffmpeg-3.1.x as they have patched it for kodi "krypton"

Whether ffmpeg upstream is aware of these patches, I'm too tired to
