What ffmpeg library has the soname bump? Depending on the library,
some package that depends on ffmpeg might not need to be rebuild.  As
he mentionned earlier, Pierre has a script to check for that (I think
it checks the packages in the repos directly).

BTW, you shouldn't trust the website too much for this rebuild as
several packages have plugins that depends on ffmpeg/x264.  As they
are make/optdepends, they don't appear on the website. Usually I
prefer running find in my abs tree.
