It builds for me on powerpc with the patches I've just comitted (to
libmad and mplayer).
I've never built it before, and I haven't actually tried running it
yet (no hw with audio/gfx output available right now).

I would very much prefer to NOT move to a random svn version.

Wouldn't -rc2 be such a version?
