Yes, i was talking about the fact the configure check would fail and not that
the changes to libx265.c from this patch would break compilation with 1.7.

As i said, if we're bumping the minimum version required then 68 is a better
choice than 60. Both mean 1.8 as minimum, but only the former will guarantee
that 12bit encoding is not experimental.
