message seems to indicate that this is a "ld" problem of some sort on my
I have seen this error the few time I've tried to compile the cvs versions
of mplayer, in the last couple of days.  I've compiled a number of
different programs (quakeforge, quake2 from quakeforge, blackbox,
pine-4.44) in the last few days.  This is the only place I've had
the ld error.
