If the configure script doesn't detect your libdvdread & libdvdcss
options, it means they are weirdly installed and that MPlayer
compilation is most unlikely to fail.

 - did you run ldconfig after installing those libs
 - does mplayer compiles & run without dvd support ?
   (plain 'configure && make' run without options)
 - do the dxr3 compilation troubles occur if dvd & dxr3 support are
   disabled ?
 - configure.log might help

As for DXR3 related problems, I dunno.
