It's x265 that needs fixing.

It's fixed in x265 in experimental but the fix was never uploaded
to unstable.

See https://salsa.debian.org/multimedia-team/x265/commits/master
for the top two commits but one, one to disable altivec (which I am
not sure is necessary on ppc64, but is on powerpc) and one to
disable POWER8 when building on ppc64 (which is the real problem
for the ppc64 distribution).
