Yes.  :)  My fault - I've had a mail in my head for a few days now,
but I've not gotten around to running it through my fingers.
From memory (I'm not looking at the scripts right now), you copy
libvdpau into the 32bit package but not the 64bit package.  If you
do it in one, you should almost surely do it in the other, but 
more importantly, why do you do that at all?  libvdpau is available
as a standalone package - if it's needed, then it needs to be listed
as a requirement.  All that said, if I'm misunderstanding something,
then a cluebat is welcome :-)
