I agree, but...

There is already va_va_h in vaapi_deps and I'm not sure, what else
you'd like to have there. However, it seems independent of this patch.

More information never hurts, so I added some specific error messages
in check_deps.

That's probably because as long as configure works a cleanup

As in "put the Changelog entry on the website"?
Fine for me if you think that'd be useful.

Of course, and I made sure that the newly added functionality actually works,
however I can't possibly test all combinations of configure options in all
sorts of environments for regressions, so help in testing e.g. the more
exotic ones would be welcome.

Can you provide links to previous attempts and their regressions so that
I can make sure they don't happen with my patch?
