Hi. I'm trying to install the latest release of MPlayer 
(MPlayer-1.0pre6a) and I'm having some trouble.

The configure program runs fine, and it compiles. But installing is 
another story.

Tenshi:/Users/ivan/Downloads/MPlayer-1.0pre6a root# make install
if test ! -d /usr/local/bin ; then mkdir -p /usr/local/bin ; fi
install -m 755 -s mplayer /usr/local/bin/mplayer
if test ! -d /usr/local/man/man1 ; then mkdir -p /usr/local/man/man1; fi
for i in en; do \
         if test "$i" = en ; then \
                 install -c -m 644 DOCS/man/en/mplayer.1 
/usr/local/man/man1/mplayer.1 ; \
         else \
                 mkdir -p /usr/local/man/$i/man1 ; \
                 install -c -m 644 DOCS/man/$i/mplayer.1 
/usr/local/man/$i/man1/mplayer.1 ; \
         fi ; \
install -m 755 -s mencoder /usr/local/bin/mencoder
for i in en; do \
         if test "$i" = en ; then \
                 ln -sf mplayer.1 /usr/local/man/man1/mencoder.1 ; \
         else \
                 ln -sf mplayer.1 /usr/local/man/$i/man1/mencoder.1 ; \
         fi ; \
Tenshi:/Users/ivan/Downloads/MPlayer-1.0pre6a root#

But, when I try to run MPlayer, I get this:

Tenshi:/Users/ivan/Downloads/MPlayer-1.0pre6a root# mplayer -v
MPlayer dev-CVS-030914-12:11-3.1 (C) 2000-2003 MPlayer Team

That version was installed before, and is not the version I want to 
use. I'm running Mac OS X 10.3.8 if that is an issue. I've never had 
this problem vefore.
