You can get mplayer installed safely by deselecting the quicktime codec
during the installation process.  To change it now, do the following:
cd /usr/ports/multimedia/win32-codecs && make config
Then deselect quicktime from the menu and save your change.  Then go
back to building mplayer and it should succeed.
