I did try this, and it didn't work. I also do not have GREP_OPTIONS
defined, as another poster asked.

I ended up just installing the package, which worked, though
it required a download of 12MB worth of stuff I don't use.

I wish it were possible to just ship mplayer with the default
skin only, and leave the others in the mplayer-skins port; I
always have problems with this port and I never use anything
but the default.  But that's another issue.
