mpv requires libplacebo explicitly for vulkan playback. Currently 0.30.0 is built with vulkan support only because ffmpeg is built with dav1d and dav1d comes with a utility called dav1dplay which requires libplacebo. itself has no requirement for libplacebo, so I think that's a tenuous dependency tree.

Additional info:
* mpv 0.30.0, ffmpeg 4.2.1

See also:
"This release has replaced the internal Vulkan rendering abstraction
with libplacebo's more up-to-date implementation."

libplacebo should be autodetected by waf, so no buildflags are needed:

libplacebo from dav1d will be dropped in next update, so if we want to preserve libplacebo, it should be added as what it is: a first level dependency :-)
