my bad here... I was trying to do the minimal amount of hacking to
deal with MPlayer's stupid non-versions. My testing didn't turn up
any cases where revision was expected to be numerical, and 't' is >
'4' so it did correctly detect as being newer.

nothing needs lzo1 most people should uninstall it once they
upgrade. Could someone apply the change in that ticket and commit?
