That's the normal behaviour. The strange part is that it finds x264.h in

You may want to try to compile the following program:

#include <stdint.h>
#include <x264.h>
int main(void) {
    return 0;

with just -lx264. If it compiles but fails to link, then there is something
seriously inconsistent in your compiler's settings, and it will probably
cause you trouble again later. If it fails to compile or success entirely,
it is probably a problem in ffmpeg's configure.

Glad I could help.
