I've been going through and fixing up issues with github URLs like these,
faac and faad2 have both gotten the treatment and the fixed versions
will appear in this week's update.

The problem is that github will allow *anything* as the filename portion
of the URL. Whether or not your downloading tool (wget, curl, browser,
whatever) saves the file with the "anything" or the server-provided
filename, depends on whether your tool uses the Content-disposition
HTTP header.
