I see you start exploring the joy of "front page decisions based
upon information provided exactly there". :-)

Speex is a codec intended for speech compression (and libspeex is
its corresponding library implementation), and libm is the math
library of your FreeBSD system (OS, not a port).

However, I have mplayer 1.0.r20110329_3 installed here on FreeBSD
8.2-STABLE (i386), using speex 1.2.r1_3,1. If you have problems
installing it, and you know you're not going to need it, just do
a "make config" in the mplayer port's directory and deselect "SPEEX"
option, then it shouldn't be built.

Is your ports tree up to date? Maybe there's a newer version of
speex or mplayer that will happily work with the system's libm v5?
