Without seeing your build logs, this would be speculation.

That said: A classic reason for ffplay not being built (or configured
actually) is the missing of SDL2 development libraries (and headers

Did your ffmpeg command line tool get SDL support?

$ ffmpeg -devices | grep sdl
ffmpeg version N-96334-g1a7f4a1 Copyright (c) 2000-2020 the FFmpeg developers
  E sdl,sdl2        SDL2 output device

If not, the missing of SDL2 is likely the issue.

(You can of course also check the "summary" output of the ./configure
command. And config.log.)
