It is worth noting that on a Pentium (prescott) that neither
 libavcodec/h264.c, nor libavcodec/i386/snowdsp_mmx.c will compile under gcc
4.2.3 without including at least "-omit-frame-pointer"
If this is going to remain true, there should be documentation, or warnings
from the configure script that these flags are required to compile those
specific modules (otherwise one runs into the GENERAL_REGS problem.
IMO, excessive emphasis has been placed on running videos fast at the
expense of facilitating one debugging them.  One should be able to compile
*all* of mplayer on a register shy machine and still get useful stack traces
when it fails.
