It's just possible that you may have to include the option
'--disable-shared-pp', that is, disable shared post-processing. It's just a
guess from the message about postproc. It's also possible that your kernel
dosn't support the MMX registers in which case compile with the
'--disable-mmx --disable-mmx2' switches (1 or the other or both).
I doubt it's a GCC problem as I've compiled mplayer under 2.95, 3.2, and 3.4

That's a pretty strong statement. I'm aware of bugs in 2.96.x
and 3.1 but 3.2? I don't see anything in the docs about this either.
I'm not disputing you. I'm only asking if your statement is made
based on a deep understanding and pretty certain knowledge or
just a guess. (My knowledge about these things is nearly _zero_
other than what I've read.)
I'd love to get the thing compiled so any help will be appreciated.
