First, are you sure there is any compatibility issue between those compilers
for compiling pure C (i.e. not C++) code?
Native BeOS applications will be C++, but MPlayer is not.
Secondly, use --disable-ass if you can live without that feature.
Unfortunately the libass developers are unwilling to support gcc 2.95,
so there is little hope of getting that to compile (though you could try
linking MPlayer against a version separately compiled with gcc 4 while
still using gcc2 for MPlayer).
If it does not compile with --disable-ass there is a chance we might fix
those issues.
