This switch is the build option --disable-runtime-cpudetect, but it is
not used in the SBo SlackBuild.

The opposite option --enable-runtime-cpudetect is the default for more
than 4 years, see

Thus, the SBo ffmpeg is _not_ built-machine dependent and the "_custom"
is not needed.

The "_custom" thing is very unfortunate because it is not recognized by
slackpkg and slackpkg+.
