I only remember a discussion about it, with the outcome "fdk_aac is not compatible with GPL".

As a result ffmpeg does dlopen to use its functionality.

If an expanded package name is requested, there will be a conflict due to exact %version-%release Requires in the devel package.
Hence the established practice to refer to capabilities via pkgconfig() instead of ever-changing package names.

Since this package is fully rebuilt anyway there is zero downside in using pkgconfig().
