No, your patch is broken. You are adding a hack that is more fragile
than the current pkg-config, just to suit people who have broken environments.

For example, not all systems use libstdc++ as the C++ runtime. e.g. OS X and
many BSDs use libc++ (Linux can even use libc++), and for MSVC, libstdc++ doesn't
even exist.

As the libx265 maintainer, patch rejected.
