What do I need to do to make gdb print the line numbers? MPlayer is
configured with --enable-debug=3 (and gcc is compiling with -g3). I'm
not yet very familiar with gdb; I'm just following the mplayer
bugreporting documentation, unless I'm messing up and doing something dumb.

In any case, your hunch seems to be correct, and my amd64 mencoder is
now working and producing data identical to the i386 build (verified
with mplayer -vo md5sum).

I've attached a workaround patch.
