Have you tried gmplayer which is included with mplayer if you compile mplayer without "WITHOUT_GUI"?

Do not include the version number when you use either pkg_update or portupgrade.  Instead, just do like this:

pkg_update openldap 
portupgrade openldap

If there are more than one versions, it'll ask you yes or no for each version.
