[MPlayer-users] The software knows better than I do

I like keeping up with things - so I recompile mpv every month or so. 
My previous mpv build (mpv 0.26.0-238-g9cb7f87b86) compiled fine and ran 
fine.  But my current mpv build (mpv 0.27.0-83-ge544c3f7b3) compiled 
without CUDA support.  When I specified '--keep' to the command and 
'--enable-cuda-hwaccel' as an option, the compile (having already spent 
time compiling many ffmpeg modules) stopped after its "Checking for ..." 
messages, and told me "You manually enabled the feature 'cuda-hwaccel', 
but the autodetection check failed."

Given that for more than a year all previous versions of mpv have worked 
with the CUDA interface to my system, I *wish* that there was a way for 
me to specify "keep compiling", even when the current version's 
autodetect thinks I'm asking for the inclusion of useless capability.
