Forgive me if I've missed part of the discussion, but how many copies of 
x264 do you have installed?  If there's only one, and it's relatively 
recent (X264_BUILD was 64 as of yesterday) you've just got a stale copy of 
x264.h somewhere, possibly accompanied by a stale copy of libx264 (either 
that, or something is horribly wrong with gcc).  Find it, delete it, and 
all should be well -- provided, naturally, that you end up linked with the 
new library (unfortunately, I don't know squat about library versioning on 

If you have parallel x264 installations...well, it's trickier.  Perhaps a 
lot trickier.
