If you are running Ubuntu (or debian), try first running:

sudo aptitude build-dep mplayer

This will install the dependencies for mplayer without installing mplayer
Of course mplayer has to be listed in the repository (that's by default

Than run as usual: ./configure, make, sudo make install

That worked for me on Ubuntu Lucid
