Hello mplayer developers,

in order to play most of my DVDs I have to *disable* libdvdnav, because 
most of them have been shipped with a broken filesystem. This is no 
problem, since libdvdcss can play them just fine.

There was no problem before libdvdnav was included in mplayer svn, 
because I just didn't install it on my system.
However since libdvdnav has been included, even when I do ./configure 
[blah] --disable-libdvdnav libdvdnav is always compiled into mplayer and 
  is used by libdvdcss:

$ mplayer dvd://

Please fix this because mplayer and mencoder are my *favourite* video tools!
