Thanks for the reply Carl .

build_one is just a script function (which will run configure with options,
make and make install) which I am calling from the script .

Since I'm building this for android platform I need to use Android cross
compiler so I set the path of Android cross compiler as sysroot.

After printing "ERROR: libx264 not found" the ffmpeg starts building and
finishes successfully but libx264 support is not included .
