Eh? Lets make it as hard as possible for the users to compile mplayer. 

An example session with the new mplayer configure system: 
$uname -a
Linux ... i686
VIDIX isn't ported to QNX yet please do it.

$./configure --help
--disable-vidix-qnx-checking ... [enable]

$./configure --disable-vidix-qnx-checking
VIDIX isn't ported to HPUX yet please do it.

Printing "mplayer can't play sorenson videos yet please fix it." is another
option. Sorenson support would be nice to have...

I hope you get the point.
