That's not the best idea. The dependency itself can't be a problem
- that still the same code, but bundled separately. With that, it
can be used by other ports, you can update it separetely while
compiling only needed code etc. The only reason for using bundled
libraries is compatibility, so if I'd make mplayer use as much
external stuff as possible.
