Call for testing: new mplayer and x264 port

the mplayer and mencoder ports are missing multimedia/v4l_compat in BUILD_DEPENDS
when V4L support is enabled. (in my case, libv4l was already installed, and I
always clean the build deps, so v4l_compat wasn't installed).

It works fine otherwise, on a 8.0-RELEASE system. Thanks !
