	I was going to ask the same thing.

	On OS/X the SDL works great.  It is possible, for the video, to use 
	'-vo x11' since XFree86 4.3.x is installed - but there's no 'xv' 
	support (unknown why - perhaps the XF86 folks just haven't gotten
	around to it yet) so it is slower.   The SDL knows how to use the 
	underlying native graphics subsystem  and uses a lot less cpu.   For 
	the audio the SDL works well but I do that '-ao macosx' will work too:
	'Audio output: sdl mpegpes(file) macosx'
