XMMS hasn't been an actively maintained piece of software for a long,
long time. Several projects have grown from it:
XMMS --> Beep Media Player (BMP) --> BMPx

XMMS2 is a very different beast from the Winamp like player XMMS was
(is). For a current simple GTK based audio placer like XMMS, see audacious.
FWIW, I have trouble with audacious playing ogg vorbis streams. Other
than that, I've had no problems with it.

If you've done it before, then I presume you are used to ports having
trouble building and running and the occasional need for compats.
