In fact, I don't have any interest with shared library.  When I don't know how to configure ffmpeg static binary with x265 support, I just wondered that shared library x265 can configure and build ffmpeg.  Except ffmpeg can't be execute at non-standard library path, and for me, adding "export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$prefix" is the solution.  
I think wrong information is bad for someone who refers this thread.  So I write again same thing.

Are you really using Mac OS X?  Or just talking about your theory which is not confirmed in a real environment?
I have tested again your mention "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=$prefix" solves the non-standard library path issue.  Then found that even though use "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=$prefix" does not solve the issue.  
In my thinking, your "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=$prefix" is just define install path of x265, which is same as "./configure --prefix=$prefix".  Not related with non-standard library path execution.

Attached text file is my test log.  I have modified just my Computer name and my user account name.
You may see in *real* Mac OS X, if build ffmpeg and x265 as shard library x265, "export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$prefix" is *required*.
