Mk/bsd.options.desc.mk VAAPI+VDPAU _DESC


users running 'make config' in ports/mesa-dri get the options to enbale VAAPI and/or VDPAU support.
Unfortunately, the description what VAAPI or VDPAU is doesn't help much, mostly because there's a strong relation to the GPU vendor of the users' hardware.
Please find attached a proposal of how to improve description.

The header of bsd.options.desc.mk says:

OPTION description text must be 43 characters or less
