The reality is that most packages in contribs, as well as VLC itself, are
based on autotools, or otherwise use compatible triplets. You cannot pass the
same architecture for AArch64 as you would for AArch32, if only because
AArch32 still needs to be supported. This is not only about NEON support in
two contrib packages.
aarch64, while rather ugly, is much easier to support than arm64 because it
does not match "arm*". And that is what ARM, LLVM and GCC specify. In the long
term though, it is likely that configure scripts need to support both.
