Look for patterns on the other libs on that wiki page.

All of them have --prefix="$HOME/ffmpeg_build"

Do that for x265 (or find the equivalent) and use make install (no root
needed, you have write perm in $HOME/ffmpeg_build). This will deploy a .pc
file with all the other pc files available in
$HOME/ffmpeg_build/lib/pkgconfig as well as deploying the libs in the
parent directory of it.

Everything else should then work as expected.
