For the record, mpv devs 'recommend' using these scripts because, and I
quote, "distribution packages are often too old or too broken". Our
packages are neither old nor broken, those script are absolutely not needed
to build mpv on Arch, mpv in [community] and mpv-git in AUR are proofs of
that. Even then, using git versions of ffmpeg, fribidi and libass and build
mpv-git would have the exact same effect as building mpv-build-git.
