  Can the win32-codecs package be installed later and still be used by
mplayer?  That is how xine-lib handles this.

  Otherwise, I would use the names win32-codecs and real-codecs and
leave them global.

  The option xvid is not handled.

  Also, if MPLAYER_DISABLE_DRIVERS is set, please add a line to
_DEPRECATED_WARNING (see, the loop that handles
PKG_OPTIONS_LEGACY_VARS).  You don't need to add deprecated variables
to BUILD_DEFS, the information is recorded via PKG_OPTIONS.
