You most definitely don't want to use checkinstall for this. You'll
probably break some other package that depends on the older version of

If you're going to generate a debian package, then the best thing to do
is use "apt-get source" to download the source code for the version of
libx264 that's currently in Debian, and use uupdate to upgrade that
source package to the new upstream version. Build that package, and
install brand-new debian packages for the new version. (See the Debian
new maintainer's guide at http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/ for
information on how this works.)
