I took a look at the patch.
The only part of it, that is in MPlayer CVS is libmpeg2 and
because of the resent upgrade it is already fixed this way:
#if !defined(PIC) && !defined(__PIC__)
The rest of the patch is about libavcodec that is part of
I must say that I am supriced to see such kind of bug in libavcodec,
as it IS library. Probably the -DPIC compiler flag solves the problem
for it ;)
I recomend you to post this mail and to ffmpeg maillist (sf.net).
Finnaly. Compiling MPlayer with -fPIC
IS VERY BAD IDEA. You are loosing about 5% of the performance and
that's why mplayer tries to compile everything staticaly.
Don't forget that we don't support manually overrided CFLAGS, etc... ;)
Wish You Best
p.s. Next time include and the patch. The bug itselfs looks like
caused by some hardened-gcc.
