mplayer's configure script autodetects installed libraries and enables

Ah, I understand better now, thanks.

So, can you perhaps explain me if this bug is a pure cosmetic issue, or
are there technical problems arising from this fact? (besides of course
the unnecessary dependency and the few kb additional space taken on /)

I used to have trouble some time ago with a bad application that auto-detected libarts and then used it, but most trouble only happens when you install artsd, and mplayer doesn't do that, so I agree that the only bad effect currently should be the clutter (if I notice anything else I will come back here).
