Great work on the new mplayer port ! Installs fine on my amd64 8-Stable 
system, and from what I have seen so far it runs smoother than the old 
version (although I guess that was to be expected).  I'm not sure if it 
is a FreeBSD specific issue but it seems however that for some reason 
support for -stop-xscreensaver has died on me. I use about the same 
options as I did with the previous port. I also tried the -heartbeat-cmd 
option to deactivate the screensaver as suggested in the manpage, but 
then I can clearly see a glitch in the video when it executes the 
command.  Anyone else having similar issues ?
