I worked my through the tutorial on compiling ffmpeg with h.265 support found at https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Ubuntu. The last thing it instructed me to do is 
PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$HOME/ffmpeg_build/lib/pkgconfig" ./configure   --prefix="$HOME/ffmpeg_build"   --pkg-config-flags="--static"   --extra-cflags="-I$HOME/ffmpeg_build/include"   --extra-ldflags="-L$HOME/ffmpeg_build/lib"   --extra-libs="-lpthread -lm"   --bindir="$HOME/bin"   --enable-gpl   --enable-libass   --enable-libfdk-aac   --enable-libfreetype   --enable-libmp3lame   --enable-libopus   --enable-libtheora   --enable-libvorbis   --enable-libvpx   --enable-libx264   --enable-libx265   --enable-nonfree

to which I got the following error:
ERROR: x265 not found using pkg-config

If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
version from Git.  If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
ffmpeg-user at ffmpeg.org mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on irc.freenode.net.
Include the log file "ffbuild/config.log" produced by configure as this will help
solve the problem.

Per the request above I am including the config.log file for your kindly review.
Any thoughts?
