oh thanks for your concern.
but i set the prefix flag to a directory on my home folder.
then add the bin folder in that folder to PATH. hence allowing me to use it
program without screwing my regular installs.
but problem is i can't differentiate b/ww the other install and the
compiles. both are named mplayer. i know its possible to rename it by hand
but thats really a crude way.
