Bug#792272: x265: FTBFS on x32

Source: x265
Version: 1.7-3
Severity: important
Tags: patch


x265 is required for libav these days (and probably ffmpeg later).
The attached patch makes it recognise x32 and handles it as a faux
non-x86 processor architecture, which is not strictly correct, but
achieves the goal to make x265 not use assembly code for it, as it
fails there currently.

We’ll eventually want to port all those asm-using packages to x32
proper, but for now, disabling asm is the way to go to get them
compiling (and thus usable in the dependency chain – no idea if
it’s actually usable as in, can decode a video in time, but we’ll
see that later).
