In what way, then? How else should I install it?

If I knew how to install it I would have edited the wiki already.

And again, irrespective of what you think a "guide" should be, people
are gonna copy-paste stuff from it without understanding. You can't
educate everyone. And instead of berating me about it, we could just
improve the documentation.

I should add that when installing x265 with "sudo make install", then
configuring ffmpeg by just adding "--enable-libx265", I get "ffmpeg:
error while loading shared libraries: libx265.so.56: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory"

So instead of arguing about it, I'd be happy if somebody could just
provide the steps for x265 installation so that it works nicely with
what's already there, so I can update the Wiki.
