Seems that Real removed this file. I got stuck with the same problem a
couple of days ago. I tried to get the file from googlification but only
found some customized 404 pages or some old version version of the file
(prior to the 2004.07.28 distinfo update). Finally, I had to beg a
friend to look into his distfiles dir to get me the right version.

Anyway, my mplayer still segfaults at start on my -CURRENT, but that's
another story.
