1. Retrieve the NVENC SDK
2. unzip this somewhere and retreive or note the location of the
nvEncodeAPI.h under nvenc_api-5.0.1/Samples/common/inc/
3. Retreive a version of cuda from and install somewhere noting
the installation prefix (typically /opt/cuda or /usr/local/cuda)
4. Now that the dependencies are sorted, there are a couple of
environment variables and/or or configure arguments that are needed to
detect the necessary libraries/headers.
