You are combining too many experimental things there IMO.
I would suggest compiling from cygwin, with the mingw64 packages that come with it (using gcc 4.5), and only setting the --cc, --ranlib and --windres options to the versions with x86_64-w64-mingw32 prefix.
In particular do not set --target (and make sure to use latest SVN).

That is a clear sign that your --target option is wrong, your mplayer is being built for Unix, not Windows.
