I think you are correct. I may compile both ffmpeg and x264 myself.
I had some issues with the transcoding I did.
First, the transcode failed on a file that had two audio tracks.
Second, in the file that finished encoding had really distorted audio.
I'm wondering if a more recent ffmpeg / x264 has fixes for those
