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.

Not really your fault, I had the -I ordering wrong.  But since almost  
nothing needs lzo1 most people should uninstall it once they  
upgrade.  Could someone apply the change in that ticket and commit?
