How is this supposed to work from a users point of view, by which I mean
that it seems if I build current mesa I no longer have vdpau.

Of course I do if I leave the old libs in place it still uses them, but
if I remove them I get no new links installed.

./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --enable-texture-float
--with-egl-platforms=x11,drm --with-gallium-drivers=radeonsi,swrast
--enable-opencl --enable-vdpau  --enable-gbm --enable-shared-glapi
--enable-glx-tls --with-dri-drivers= && make -j5
