 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.
