[MPlayer-users] MPlayer CVS broken

I recently installed MPlayer CVS with GCC 4.0, AltiVec enabled.  
MPlayer happens to work well, as far as I have tested it (which isn't  
too far). MEncoder, however, is completely dysfunctional.

Below is the spew when I try to run it, even just to get a list of  
output video codecs:

Exiting... (configfile error)

In the original draft of this message, I had my config log attached,  
(since it says "configfile error" I thought it might prove useful)  
but the moderator refused to accept it. Please let me know what  
additional information I should include.

P.S. -- I'm trying to compile in x264 support. Is this an issue?

Even moderation ought not to be practiced to excess.
