Hm.. i would rather make a note in the binary packaging manual
that distributors are encouraged to build with --enable-mga --enable-xmga
instead of disabling this test. Most people still build mplayer
themselves. Ie with mga_vid always enabled they will have to build
two big drivers all the time although they will never need it
(the mga_vid user base is quite small).
Crosscompilers are a different case. Those rather tend not
to use mga_vid as most crosscompilation is for embedded
systems that do not use matrox graphics cards. And even
if they would, they can easily enable it by hand during
So, i suggest to revert the mga_vid part of this commit completely.
