Ok, after some search and bugging some ppc kernel developers, I can say 
that the mplayer configure script is broken for the linux ppc platform.
It tries to parse the /proc/cpuinfo that on ppc reports different data 
with different fields.

the resulting OPTFLAGS on a G4 with gcc3 after a ./configure are::
OPTFLAGS = -O4   -pipe -ffast-math -fomit-frame-pointer -D_REENTRANT 

that are at least wierd if not wrong.

They suggested to use the ELF AUX tables to get the data in a better way.
