This was already asked recently, see

Quick translation of my reply:
Apparently it's not allowed to distribute ffmpeg with libfdk-aac support for 
license reasons.
See also this recent change in the vlc package:
(that's not yet in Leap 15.0 AFAICS).

- The license of fdk-aac is not GPL compatible, therefore this pkg
  can not possibly be built with fdk-aac by default
  To gain fdk-aac support, recompile it at home and keep it there

Presumably, that's why it (building with fdk-aac) has been disabled completely 
in Packman's project config (so for ffmpeg too).

You can use ffmpeg's built-in aac encoder instead though, which should give 
usable results meanwhile.

Kind Regards,
