[CinCV TNG] OpenJPEG files inside CinGG outdated?

Hello, all!

I was looking into all those new/old codec news, and found OpenJPEG has some 
speed work last year:

This new release finalizes the work made by Even Rouault and funded by several 
academic institutions and archival organizations to make OpenJPEG significantly 
faster and safer.
In addition to what has been done in v2.2.0 (multithreading at decoding, speed 
optimizations, memory consumption reduction, etc, see this post for details), 

Overall, if we compare performances of OpenJPEG before all Even’s optimizations 
(v2.1.2) and the ones reached by the new v2.3.0 release, we observe a 55-60% 
speed improvement on single-thread whole image decoding (even more on big 
images like 10000x10000). Memory consumption is also drastically reduced on 
mega-image decoding: for example, for a full decoding of a single tile 
8000x12000 image, it is reduced from 2 to 1.3 GB RAM.

so, because I rely on Cinelerra-provided new libraries (system partially 
outdated), may be files used by Cin-GG can be updated? Right now they at 
openjpeg-2.1.0-20160221 . I will try to do some tests locally.

Also, some urls in thirdparty/downloads.txt are outdated?
for example, there is ffmpeg 3.3 (but git currently  uses 4.0) ..Not sure if 
this file is useful for anything, just was looking around while trying to 
rebuild Cin with opencv support ....
