I used "gecko-sdk-i686-pc-linux-gnu-gtk2+xft-1.8b1" to compile mplayerplugin.

./configure --enable-gtk2 --with-mozilla-home=/usr/lib/iceweasel --with-gecko-sdk=/path/to/gecko-sdk/

Then I got such information:
checking for g++... g++
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C++ compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o

Using new (v1.7+) gecko-sdk

configure: error: xpidl compiler not found

I checked /path/to/gecho-sdk/bin and xpidl was right there. After some effort I changed to stable source, it worked very well.
I suppose it was because the modification to the configure file.
