That won't work. The package options are not supposed to change during a 
complete system build. At least in our bulk builds, this is the way we go.

In your case, you would build an mplayer without the "arts" option, but 
when it comes to building meta-pkgs/kde3 with the "arts" option, that 
package will assume that this option has been enabled all the time.
