During compilation, time if `libsixel` is detected, `mpv` is compiled with "sixel" feature enabled.

I suggest to manually enable it or to add `libsixel` to "makedepends" in `PKGBUILD`.

Additional info:
* mpv 0.36.0
* built on Sun Jul 23 05:49:29 2023

Steps to reproduce:
* Compile with "sixel" and run `mpv --vo=sixel test.mp4`

* Without
[vo] Video output sixel not found!
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (--vo) device.
This task depends upon
