They have problems with the mplayer port, simply because in *BSD, you
install everything from ports (or pkg-src for NetBSD).  You might as
well try to say that some Linux people seem to have problems with
compiling from source.

One good reason everyone uses ports, is that many projects are
linux-centric, and don't work under BSD without numerous patches (the
ports system applies those patches).  Compiling from unmodified
MPlayer sources is not really feasable.
