 Summary of the bug:
 How to reproduce:
 When compiling (regardless of having libx264 installed or not)
 % ./configure --enable-encoder=libx264
 It will '''not''' give a "Unknown option" error (I believe it should) and
 it does not add libx264 to the list of encoders.
 I now know the correct way to get libx264 is to use --enable-libx264. But
 was confused for a while.
 here's a the [http://pastebin.com/gw79T18X config.log] I get
 ffmpeg version: N-44711-gf25d53d (that is what I get when I run
 ./version.sh after downloading the latest source with git)
 built on Ubuntu 12.04 and 11.04
