I don't think re-packaging files from other packages into your own is a good idea -
your package may work OK, when no dependencies packages installed, but it will conflict with any dependency package that was for some reason installed before FFMPEG.

And also doesn't depend to any distribution.
You can try Ermine ( or statifier (

Both of them pack dynamically linked executable and all needed shared libraries (Ermine also able pack arbitrary files, such as icons, configs, etc) to the single self-contained executable, that can be run virtually on any Linux box (with same arch)
