After some more tests it turns out to me that Stefan Ehmann is right. 
Without having at least a link from 
/usr/local/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/vdpau* to /usr/local/include/vdpau 
there is no VDPAU support!

You can prove it with 'mplayer -vo help'. In the first lines you should see:

Available video output drivers:
         vdpau   VDPAU with X11

Sorry for the noise.
