I don't think it matters whether its  windows or linux because the
source is same.
What I wanted to know is where is that magic "mplayer" string which I
can replace it with my own in the source? May be there is some
constants defined somewhere.

For example:
After you have mentioned the --confdir option, I found out that the
default config dir is coded in the "get_path.c" file as follows:

#ifdef __MINGW32__
	static char *config_dir = "/mplayer";
	static char *config_dir = "/.mplayer";

So that means, if I forget to give and --confdir option, default will
be taken form this file. By modifying this lines, I was able to come
to same result as using the --confdir option. Since this option is
handy than tampering the source file, I am sticking to it. As for my
first problem, I couldn't find something like this nor any option in
./configure --help

Hope somebody will shade light on this.

Anyway many thanks for the pointers
