	MPlayer features custom graphics chipset acceleration through a
	setup called vidix.  It requires their own drivers to be installed.
	Although built, they aren't installed by the package.
	$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/multimedia/mplayer
	$ make install
	$ pkg_info mplayer | grep vidix

	Note there's no output
	The vidix drivers are in .../vidix/drivers.  Just do
	`gmake install'.
