this would be the second time that I've submitted this problem to the  
mailing list. The first time, I got no responses, so I'm hoping this  
time would be different.

About two nights ago (or so), I compiled the MPlayer CVS code on my  
Apple iBook G4 running Mac OS X (10.4.1). I compiled with GCC4 and  
with AltiVec support. MPlayer is fully functional, but mencoder is  
not. mencoder is completely broken. What follows below is my error:

Tenshi:~ ivan$ /usr/local/bin/mencoder

Exiting... (configfile error)

Can anyone please help me with this problem? It's been quite annoying  
to be without an up-to-date copy of MEncoder.

Below is the configuration line I used. All paths are correct, but it  
should be noted that despite the entry on x264, the configuration  
program still rejected it.

./configure --with-glib-config=/sw/bin/glib-config --with-gtk-config=/ 
sw/bin/gtk-config --with-sdl-config=/opt/local/bin/sdl-config --with- 
freetype-config=/usr/X11R6/bin/freetype-config --with-xanimlibdir=/ 
usr/local/lib/codecs/ --enable-macosx-finder-support --enable- 
largefiles --with-x264libdir=/usr/local/lib --with-x264incdir=/usr/ 

Thank you for any help at all.
