The decoder should depend on the header in configure directly already,
so its not built at all when the header is not available.

Secondly, why is there a AVHWAccel in there? It doesn't have any
callable functions, nor do we support AVHWAccel for mjpeg.
For some reason the other QSV codecs also have this, but also without
any functions in them - those serve no purpose and are likely to even
cause problems if a user accidentally tries to use it. I'll send a
patch to remove them, unless you can name a reason for them to exist.
