Disable "vorbis" encoder to enforce use of "libvorbis"

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ffmpeg

As per Monty's blog post, I'd suggest building ffmpeg for Ubuntu with: --disable-encoder=vorbis --enable-libvorbis to make sure that the (broken) built-in "vorbis" encoder is disabled, to encourage the use of the external libvorbis encoder instead. This will be even more relevant as WebM use picks up.
