It must have been some error on my side. Removing both the javafx.media and
javafx.web will omit the libav* Requires from my RPM package built by

Does the problem then lie on the jpackage "scanning" for Linux Package
What linux distribution and package where these bundled so-files built from?
The libav56 should come from ffmpeg2 package, while libav57 is from ffmpeg3
package, but none of these ffmpeg packages produce a libavcodec-ffmpeg.so.
My Linux distribution OpenSUSE, and I have checked with Fedora, do not have
They do however have the libavcodec.so.57 which is among the requires
(version 56 and 57).
