Sbopkg relies on the SlackBuild scripts for passing configuration
options.  Some SlackBuild scripts have this capability built in, in
which case you can use the Options selection when in the package menu.
ffmpeg is an example of this.

For those that don't offer this, then you'll need to manually edit the
SlackBuild (which you can do from within sbopkg) and then select the
locally-edited version of the Slackbuild when building.
