so build/generic/configure:5025:

has this code (in couple of places)

CFLAGS=`echo $CFLAGS | sed s,"-mcpu","-mtune",g`

and it replaces valid -mcpu with -mtune which does not support all same options

on arm64 it's perfectly legal to specify CPU crypto extention support like this


but xvid replaces -mcpu with -tune where it's not legal

cc1: error: unknown value 'cortex-a72.cortex-a53+crypto' for '-mtune' ; did you mean 'cortex-a72.cortex-a53'?

so basically it bails out if it sees the +crypto part.

source is here

maybe let's just rip it out?

I have a fix in my personal overlay:

I remove the mcpu -> mtunes replacement completely, and it just works.
