[MPlayer-users] mplayer 0.90rc4: libaa broken ???

I'm using mplayer 0.90rc4 on my machine. I just wanted to use the libaa 
feature to check the movies before encoding them with mencoder. I could 
use the DVB-Card to watch the recording as well but not at the same time 
as I record a movie. So libaa is all I needed.
On the machine there is no X installed.
I did "./configure --enable-dvbhead 
--with-extraincdir=/pathtoDVBinclude". The script then autodetected 
libaa. After that I simply did "make && make install"
The movie I was about to play is an MPEGPES stream from my DVB-card.
With "mplayer -v -vo aa movie.mpg" mplayer outputs the following:

mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory
Note that the above is the complete!!! output.

The option --disable-x11 does not solve the problem.

So does libaa need X11 or does mplayer need X11 in order to use libaa?
Either one was silly, wasn't it?
