It was myself who fixed it (even though it makes configure run slightly
slower for users with modern software). Be a bit more careful with your
wild accusations.

Well, at least you're plain insulting now (in other places too). I feel
sorry for the mplayer project to have to deal with such a user, but at
least I won't.

One thing about all this garbage nonsense you wrote though: it's not a
quality sign of software to support ancient software environments. You
sound like a Windows XP user who plans to stick with it forever, and
blames anyone who drops XP support.

Anyway, certainly offtopic on this list.
