I successfully built latest stable mplayerxp on ubuntu 10.10 x86_64 but result is unusable due to failed audio:

- no sound by default
- with -ao alsa sound fails due to lack of libfaad.so
There is libfaad.so.2 on the system but mplayerxp crash if it's symlinked to libfaad.so

in both cases rewind will result in segfault.

Anyway:
- such incompatibilities should be detected during build, not in runtime
- if binaries are produced they expected to work or gracefully report errors not to segfault

    Oops - it should be bug, not feature request of course.
