Why not?

All other ffmpeg build-dependencies have already been built there.

Exactly. The cycles involve frei0r, opencv and x264.

They will also be resolved with this change, which won't require
any manual intervention from mips64el porters.
Then x264 and opencv (and after that frei0r) can build, so that they
can be re-enabled on mips64el with the next ffmpeg upload.

I've done the same for x32 and it worked fine.
