mplayer, related packages: update to 1.5

some changes to attempt to make mplayer in pkgsrc less
"absurdly complicated"

  1.5: "Hope" February 27, 2022

    Decoders, demuxers, streams:
    * ffmpeg12vpdau is no longer supported by FFmpeg,
      provide separate ffmpeg1vpdau and ffmpeg2vdpau instead
    * live555 deprecated and disabled by default, will be removed
      in future

    * Fix wrongly sized video window after leaving fullscreen mode
    * Clear screen when switching to fullscreen mode using the x11
      video output driver
    * Command line option -fs is now recognized in addition to the
      GUI option load_fullscreen
    * Use correct visual in OpenGL video output driver for X11
    * Provide a built-in skin so that the GUI can be used even
      without an installed skin
    * Native Language Support, i.e. the GUI language can be changed
      as specified in LC_MESSAGES or LANG
    * Minor bug fixes

    * Building on Arm now compiles for the ISA and extensions of the
      host CPU by default. This should avoid issues like builds on
      e.g. Raspbian not using NEON by default.
      Can use --enable-runtime-cpudetection to restore the previous
      behaviour, though full runtime CPU detection is not supported.
    * New configure option --enable-nls for Native Language Support at
      runtime (for the moment only for the GUI and enabled by default
      for it)
    * macOS: Fixes for retina display, sluggish input processing

Log message:
mplayer: put back pulseaudio to SUGGESTED_OPTIONS.

- the default audio output driver (in case no -ao option is specified)
  on NetBSD is still oss even if pulseaudio is enabled
- users can change the audio output driver by "-ao pulse" option or
  "ao=pulse" in ~/.mplayer/config file, as they did on 1.3.0 packages
- SDL (which is in current SUGGESTED_OPTIONS) already depends on
  pulseaudio by default

Log message:
mplayer: Update to 1.4

pkgsrc changes:

* Set autosync = 30 by default to fix choppy video with NetBSD's new
  audio system.
* Remove PulseAudio and legacy sound servers (nas, esd) as defaults.
  Consistent with mpv.
* Add an alsa option and enable it by default on Linux.
* Disable all codecs by default and just use ffmpeg instead.
  Allows distribution restrictions based on patents to be removed.
  Tested with a variety of common file formats.
  Consistent with other packages (e.g. FreeBSD Ports).
  While here, upgrade to ffmpeg4.
