The problem is "et. al".

Or in other words:
Either arm compilation is broken (with useful configure options), then please
report this / send a patch to fix it, or it works fine, then such a script
should not be useful (and not used, especially not when reporting problems).

One of the two filters has a license header that does not look compatible with
FFmpeg. If you believe the filters are useful (I cannot comment), please add an
appropriate license header (if you are the author of the file) and send patches
to ffmpeg-devel.
