mplayer on Mac OS X compilation errors

I had a very unpleasant time this morning compiling mplayer, with LIVE555 support, for Mac OS X Intel (Leopard, 10.5.4).

LIVE555 compiled fine, with

./genmakefiles macosx

and I moved it into /opt/local/lib/live to “co””exist” with some macports libraries.

But mplayer refused to play nicely, until I built it with

./configure --disable-gui --disable-mencoder --disable-xinerama --disable-xv --disable-x11 --enable-largefiles --enable-macosx-finder-support --enable-menu --with-freetype-config=/usr/X11R6/bin/freetype-config --with-extraincdir=/opt/local/lib/live/ --with-extralibdir=/opt/local/lib

Yeah…right…I totally should have known that off the top of my head. At least now the binary is built, so I could Bonjour it to a coworker for his MacBook and he could start using it straight away.
