If the packages libXv and libXxf86dga are installed, mplayer silently builds with support for these, but does not register them as dependencies in the package database. If they are not present, mplayer does not have support for them. This is especially annoying if libXv is missing, because this results in no hardware accelerated scaling.
Build mplayer, when libXv and/or libXxf86dga are already/not installed. Compare the "pkg_info -r mplayer-0.99.11_5" lists (which do not differ) and the "mplayer -vo help" lists (which differ by the presence/absence of xv and dga video output).
Add library dependencies on libXv and libXxf86dga to the Makefile of multimedia/mplayer and optionally add "make config"-switches.
