Apparently who ever mainains that mplayer package (I suggest if you want 
to compile it yourself, use SVN/git) removed or didn't include dvdnav

That's normal and pretty common that main feature is a further title on the DVD,
especially if it's redistributed release. It's actually nothing compared to
recent releases that you need to skip first 5-10 secs of the _title_ to be able
to play it, but on e.g. Star Trek DVD main title contains chapters in unordered
state so even if you copy the stream, movie will be unwatchable.
