It would probably help to teach people to use the "sudo apt-get
build-dep mplayer" command that is what I use under Ubuntu. It install
everything I have ever needed for dependencies except for aac stuff
that Ubuntu does not include in the default build due to licensing.
Strange thing is I don't know any gui way to get build-deps.
