You don't have to.
That's a alternative sentence to "For me it works and for the momemnt
I don't have access to a machine on which it does not." :-)

If you do something like
ldd /usr/local/bin/mplayer | grep freetype
and someting like
libfreetype.so.9 =3D> /usr/local/lib/libfreetype.so.9 (0x284a7000)
appears, mplayer is linked against freetype and wants to use truetype
fonts instead of the ones provided in the mplayer-fonts port.
I'll take a quick look into configure....wait.......errr.....damn!
I see the problem!
The configure script in mplayer-0.90 defaulted to bitmap fonts, whereas
the new script detects and links against freetype automatically.
I'll submit a pr to fix this asap!

Yes, I'm sorry, I didn't see the change to the freetype detection when
checking configure last week, shame on me :-(

Well, that's easy: Just find any font named <something>.ttf, for
example in a fonts dir of a windows installation, or a web site
providing free truetype font examples (google certainly helps), and
copy this file to ~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf
That's it. THe next time you start gmplayer, it will use the font.
Well, okay, I'll take care of this autodetection thing.
Thanks for reporting this problem.
