`optional` lists. If you don't consider the man pages required, then the
docutils package is optional, too. Building the man pages is
If lua is not installed, much functionality will be lost. This is the
reason I have included lua in both the `required` and `optional` lists.
If you don't consider the functionality lua gives required, then the

Dependencies are autodetected. Some optional dependencies are disabled
by default and may be enabled (see BUILD_OPTS). Optional dependencies
that are enabled by default may be disabled (see BUILD_OPTS).
To override the default for build options, set the shell variable
BUILD_OPTS prior to or at build time. For example, to enable cdda and
openal, which are disabled by default, and to build with four jobs in
parallel, you could use the following:
~# BUILD_OPTS="--enable-cdda --enable-openal --jobs=4" sh mpv.SlackBuild
The following list is meant as a note to myself of build options or
optional dependencies currently unavailable via full Slackware
installation and from SBo:
vapoursynth, rsound, mujs (too old version on SBo)
