As some of you might've noticed, there's an official release of mpg123
(v0.66) out now.  It has some nice feature enhancements (keyboard
controls, automatic gain a la madplay, etc) as well as sse/3dnow
support which can be compiled in and used as detected (IIRC) as e.g.
libGL does.

There is also support for many new output methods.

I'm not sure if I'll be done with this in time for Q2 (or whether or
not the update is too major to be appropriate for Q2).

I'm wondering, though, whether I should use the "legacy" makefile or
switch to using their GNU autoconf script?  My main concern is that
their configure script is, well, crappy. ;)  My inclination is to
switch to GNU autoconf and work around the problems simply because I
have a feeling that they're not going to update the legacy makefile
properly over time.
