Well, I tried "which x264", and discovered that my system had been using
the wrong one, a parallel installation in "/sw" which can obviously be
attributed to my use of Fink. So I removed /sw/bin/x264 and
/sw/include/x264.h (actually replaced them with symlinks to the ones I
wanted, which may cost me later considering that I'm no expert) and then
used the correct mplayer configure command for my installation.
Then x264 was recognized. Thanks!
