	If I can find a supplier of "copious free time" I'll try to
	come up with some hints/tips about getting MPlayer to build/run
	on OS/X

	The problem was not with getting MPlayer to build - that part
	was painless.   Where I ran into difficulties was in the various
	libraries/packages needed (libdv, libfaad2, and so on) - some of
	those are fairly difficult to get built.  

	Fortunately libSDL is a 'native OS/X' package so it is not
	necessary to install XFree86.
