I think I have to agree with Baptiste here because there is no API
change in libav* and if you are calling ffmpeg as an external program
there is no change either. This shouldn't affect you at all, and you
should be checking the libav* versions if you are using them anyway. A
change there implies potential breakage.

That said if you'd like to it's a simple #if X264_BUILD < 64 check to
add to the file.

Take care,
