mplayer is using internals of libavformat which have been renamed. This
particular symbol is now called 'ff_codec_wav_tags', but there are also
other ones. Upgrading to mplayer rc4 will fix this issue.

Still, a proper breaks field needs to be added to the ffmpeg package for
ensuring proper partial upgrades. thanks for reporting this.
