Audacity 2.0.3 no longer supports ffmpeg on Gentoo

I tried to open an mp4 in Audacity and got an error telling me that Audacity cannot open Advanced Codex audio files...knowing that I had opened them before, I did some research, and found a bug report...

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=417869

However, the package entry for Audacity 2.0.3 on Sabayon Linux lists the ffmpeg use flag

https://packages.sabayon.org/show/audac ... ,standard/

Is it possible to just get a build in entropy with a manual library install per this...?

The only work around I could figure was to just mask 2.0.3 for now and downgrade to 2.0.2...

How else can I extract foreign audio from avi's (for listening and learning on the ipod). I either need audacity to work with ffmpeg or another program. I don't use any KDE apps though, so those are not an option for me.

You can just use ffmpeg directly.
