Trying to recompile ffmpeg on a Linux Mint 18.3 system; currently  
installed version
is 2-3 years old and gives a lot of errors about libav1.

The Compilation Guide (trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Ubuntu) states:

"If your repository provides libx264-dev version ≥ 118,
   then you can install that instead of compiling
  If your repository provides libx265-dev version ≥ 68.
   then you can install that instead of compiling"

Running "apt show" on these two libraries shows the following versions  
in the repo:
    lib264, Version  2:0.148.2643+git5c65704-1
    lib265, Version  1.9-3

Are these new enough to use in compilation ?

thanks for any assistance -
