That's the error:

#error "NEON intrinsics not available with the soft-float ABI.  Please use -mfloat-abi=softp or -mfloat-abi=hard"

I think the best option would be to tell the package to disable neon in this
case, just like ffmpeg is doing already. If you can test:

CONFIGURE_ARGS += --disable-neon
