[MPlayer-users] --with-extraincdir and --with-extralibdir flags removed?

I am cross compiling MPlayer and I looked online to get some tips.  Seems like the --with-extraincdir and --with-extralibdir flags are quite helpful in pointing configure script to my embedded platform's include and lib directories.  However these flags have been removed from the configure script so now I am stumped how to cleanly configure the build for my system.

Is there a good reason why these were removed?  Also, what is their replacement?  Essentially, I have directfb and alsa built for my embedded system and I'd like configure to setup the mplayer build utilizing that rather than my Linux PC's resources.

Going through the configure options I don't see anything analogous to these flags so I am also wondering about the genius of removing them.
