After tons of fine tuning, tweaking compilation parameters, config.h  
file and editing a couple of *.h files  I managed to compile mplayer  
in Leopard with ASS support. ( surprise - no trivial work at all).

And it seems that it doesn't break.  :)

The question is, though, which configuration parameters were used for  
the (just recently released) MPlayer for Mac OS X.

I suspect that the problem is not with mplayer itself, but with the  
released binary. Which ./configure parameters were used? Is probably  
the OS X packager listening, to help with this issue?
