I did not see your version, where can I find it?

Please do not change the default to pkg-config, 
this will break build scripts and is therefore 
not a good idea.

My patch is meant to fix detection of x264 if the 
detection fails with the current configure code.
It is not meant to replace the path-driven 
general configure approach.
