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.
