I think that's been removed in newer versions.

I currently have a separate git-svn checkout of FFmpeg, and in the
MPlayer directory I have a script that creates bind mounts from it:

mount --bind /FFMPEG_PATH/libavutil libavutil
mount --bind /FFMPEG_PATH/libavformat libavformat
mount --bind /FFMPEG_PATH/libavcodec libavcodec
mount --bind /FFMPEG_PATH/libpostproc libpostproc

I'm using bind mounts instead of symbolic links because with symbolic
links libavcodec/.. would not come back to the current directory.

Obviously this is not a perfect solution but mostly it works well enough
for me.
