This port is in good health according to the on-line port summary.  Some
debugging is warranted.  I do not use mplayer, but I offer a few

1.  Check /opt/local/bin for variations on spelling of the mplayer
executable.  Check upper/lower case and variations on the suffix.

2.  If you saved a console log, or if you try another install, check for
earlier error messages that might point to the origin of your problem.

3.  Follow the procedures under FAQ #1, "A port fails to build".  Among
other things, this ensures that dependencies are working and up to date.


4.  If #3 does not succeed, file a problem ticket as directed in #3.
