Hmm, I must admit I completely forgot to run it past portlint (although
I was aware that 1.5.0rc3 was an invalid PORTVERSION).  I wouldn't have
spotted the other WARN though, I've only used it minimally before and I

Well, it seemed to me that if WITH_MPLAYER=0 was specified to make then
WITH_MPLAYER was defined.  However, if no option was defined then I want
to install mplayer -- this seemed a nice way to do it at the time.  Have
I missed the plot here?

  Thanks for the info,
