multimedia/gmplayer has been broken for several weeks now.

Has anyone been able to build it on NetBSD-3?

I have a PR that is currently in state OPEN that details the issue

In the PR I give a quick patch that will make gmplayer compile on my system.

However, it is a truly bizarre problem, because multimeda/mplayer DOES 
compile just fine, and it uses the exact same code.  Only difference is 
the addition of the gtk includes.  Either gcc-3 can't handle this 
situation, or there is some funky stuff going on that causes a variable 
to drop out of an object file.

I'm just stumped.
Can anyone look at the PR and give me some pointers?

Also, please CC my email directly if you respond, I'm not subscribed.
