Summary of the bug:

Building FFmpeg with the --enable-cuda-nvcc option results in a build failure.

How to reproduce:

FFmpeg was configured as such:

cd ~/ffmpeg_sources
git clone -b master
cd FFmpeg
PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$HOME/ffmpeg_build/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/intel/mediasdk/lib/pkgconfig" ./configure \
  --pkg-config-flags="--static" \
  --prefix="$HOME/bin" \
  --bindir="$HOME/bin" \
  --extra-cflags="-I$HOME/bin/include" \
  --extra-ldflags="-L$HOME/bin/lib" \
  --enable-cuda-nvcc \
  --enable-cuvid \
  --enable-libnpp \
  --extra-cflags="-I/usr/local/cuda/include/" \
  --extra-ldflags=-L/usr/local/cuda/lib64/ \
  --enable-nvenc \
  --extra-cflags="-I/opt/intel/mediasdk/include" \
  --extra-ldflags="-L/opt/intel/mediasdk/lib" \
  --extra-ldflags="-L/opt/intel/mediasdk/plugins" \
  --enable-libmfx \
  --enable-libass \
  --enable-vaapi \
  --disable-debug \
  --enable-libvorbis \
  --enable-libvpx \
  --enable-libdrm \
  --enable-opencl \
  --enable-gpl \
  --cpu=native \
  --enable-opengl \
  --enable-libfdk-aac \
  --enable-libx265 \
  --enable-openssl \
  --extra-libs="-lpthread -lm" \
PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" make -j$(nproc) 
make -j$(nproc) install 
hash -r

The build fails at:

Your nv-codec-headers are too old.
Only the latest releases have the required functions.

You must have installed some commit from in the middle of bumping the SDK and doing an actual release, otherwise configure wouldn't even enable that filter.

You are correct.

I had to delete the entire workspace and begin from scratch.
For whatever reason (perhaps its' by design), the ./configure script does not "reset" options passed to it but rather, updates them incrementally.

For these who run into this issue in the future, here's the fix:

Purge the ffmpeg directory:

cd ~/ffmpeg_sources && rm -fr FFmpeg

Then uninstall any older ffnvcodec header packages you may have in your system.
Mine was in the default prefix. Handled it via:

cd ~/ffmpeg_sources
git clone
cd nv-codec-headers
sudo make uninstall

As it turns out, I had an old copy of these headers installed in the default prefix. That should purge the older version.

Then deploy the same to the same prefix where ffmpeg's ./configure script can pick up the library's pkgconfig:

cd ~/ffmpeg_sources/nv-codec-headers
make install PREFIX="$HOME/ffmpeg_build"

Then proceed to configure and build ffmpeg as desired.

Thanks for the assistance, and apologies for the noise.
