I'm not sure, if ths cycling dependency (ffmpeg needs x264 to build, 
x264 needs ffmpeg to build) is such a good idea. PMBs shouldn't have a 
problem when both packages are build once, but whenever we add a new 
Build-Target, it will fail to solve dependencies.

Therefore I've allways build x264 binary without ffmpeg support. The 
only clean way to solve this is, to split x264 into two package one for 
the libs and devel package only without dependency to ffmpeg and one 
only to build the x264 executeable with ffmpeg dependency.
