On a sidenote: I used to build mplayer from svn regularly on my previous 
system. Updating mplayer usually was quite painless. Simply 'svn up && 
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mplayersvn && gmake && gmake install'. 
In 99% of the cases rebuilding went perfectly; no patches required or 
anything, and I rebuilded mplayer almost weekly. This was on a i386 
system by the way, on my current amd64 install I run into problems 
trying to compile the current svn snapshots.

I know it is not as nice as simply having a port. But if you realy need 
the svn-releases for some feature XYZ it may be a (temporary) solution.
