[MPlayer-users] Latest SVN compile problem

thanks for your efforts,
well, the first problem is not gcc related, but still a problem:
configure fails with "Checking for extern symbol prefix ...
./configure: syntax error at line 2278: `sym=$' unexpected" because
/bin/sh, if i change to bash works ok.

if i ./configure --cc=cc --host-cc=cc -- still uses gcc for checks, if
i remove gcc from the PATH,
./configure: line 1503: gcc: command not found
./configure: line 1530: gcc: command not found

It seems that your kernel does not correctly support mmx.
To use mmx extensions in MPlayer, you have to upgrade/recompile your kernel!
Checking for mtrr support ... yes
Checking for GCC & CPU optimization abilities ... CPU optimization
disabled. CPU not recognized or your compiler is too old.
Checking for extern symbol prefix ...
Error: Symbol mangling check failed.

so i modified (see 1.diff, i know it's not beauty but temporarily is
ok) configure, after these modifications, it works ok, only these

"cpuinfo.c", line 130: warning: integer overflow detected: op "<<"
"cpuinfo.c", line 132: warning: integer overflow detected: op "<<"
"cpuinfo.c", line 133: warning: integer overflow detected: op "<<"
"cpuinfo.c", line 137: warning: integer overflow detected: op "<<"
"cpuinfo.c", line 139: warning: integer overflow detected: op "<<"

attached configure.log too.
cc: Warning: illegal option -march=native
cc: Warning: illegal option -mcpu=native

imho should be: -xtarget=native and -xarch=native

i must edit config.mak too, it had CC=gcc and CXX=g++

and finally gmake log.. many errors.. but it continues the building
