           Summary: --enable-shared-pp should not be used.
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: SVN
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://lfs.netservice-
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK

I think there was a misunderstanding as to what --enable-shared-pp does. It just
makes MPlayer compile and link to the postprocessing library dynamically instead
of statically. The functionality will always be compiled in. As dynamic linking
often causes problems, this switch should not be used.
Also, it is recommended to install all codecs always into /usr/lib/codecs.
Like this, it will also be recognized automatically and MPlayer will compile
with codecs support, the --with-codecsdir is not necessary in that case.
Would be nice if you could do these changes.
