Could you explain what problem either of these "solutions" 
would fix and particularly how it would fix them?

Could you elaborate?
$ svn checkout mplayer && cd mplayer && ./configure && make 
works fine or do I miss something?

I believe if it is really necessary, a shell script that 
checks out an appropriate version is not difficult but I 
wonder how frequent this is needed.
