On my machine, ${PREFIX}/lib/vdpau contains:
libvdpau_gallium.so.1 -> libvdpau_r600.so.1.0.0

Note that libvdpau_gallium.so.1 is only created when I force an
ldconfig on my system (until then, I just have

For some reason, while the files are in the same place, mplayer -vo
vdpau chokes on loading these files now.  If I copy
libvdpau_r600.so.1.0.0 to /usr/local/lib/libvdpau_r600.so, then
mplayer (-vo vdpau) picks it up and plays without issue.  Is the VDPAU
backend loader looking in the wrong directory?
