Xpra: Ticket #587: compile error in enc_x265

Error compiling Cython file:

    #we can handle high quality and any speed
    #setup cost is moderate (about 10ms)

Yes, you're right I think.

It should be fixed in r6606. Let me know and I'll backport the fix.

Note: no-one should be using enc_x265 at this point because it is ridiculously slow, which is why it doesn't really get tested very often, and not even compile-tested since it isn't packaged for any of the major distros AFAIK.
