Now, that means it's not the right "install" program. You should be using the
one in /usr/ucb. In fact, if you do a "file /usr/sbin/install" or even
"more /usr/sbin/install", you will find that it is actually a shell script,
and is not meant to do what /usr/ucb/install does at all.

MPlayer probably should not be installed by the system administrator in a
global location anyway. If you did all this as a normal user, you probably
would have had no problem installing.
