Good thing is that someone allready remove my as the maintainer, otherwise
I would have done that now.

Thats the wrong way. Now a package won't run out of the box. Why not install
a default link which can be changed by making the link in ~/.mplayer/font?
The $HOME link will overwrite the one in $PREFIX.

And the turning on the --enable-runtime-cpudetection without any way to
disable it, better only enable it if a flag is set, is also a performance
thing which should not be done.
