i was able to compile mplayer in the last 5 years, but since a month
unfortunately not. i prefer to make it for myself. anyway, is there
any developer here, who uses debian sid?
the other fun in this error message at the very beginning of the
compilation, is that i can not find any string related to x11r6 with
this :
"grep -ir x11r6 *" in the main dir.
