I just did a "git pull" on vlc and now VLC will not cross compile for 
Win64. I am getting the following error:

checking for QTX11... no
configure: error: Package requirements (Qt5X11Extras) were not met:

No package 'Qt5X11Extras' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables QTX11_CFLAGS
and QTX11_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
make: *** [config.status] Error 1

It successfully built before the "get pull". I also tried to re-fetch 
the vlc contrib packages but it says there is nothing new to fetch or 
build. Should Qt5X11Extrasbe part of the contribs? Since I am cross 
compiling for Win64 should it even need Qt5X11Extras? Thoughts?
