 Well, it would be better to see exact reproducible procedure
 with some specific release versions/binaries and misc settings.

 No idea, but if it works even with "text relocations" warnings,
 I think it is a bug, or environment specific settings. (see below)

 Do you still get text relocations warnings with pkgsrc-2018Q2 binaries?
 Or do you just think the old version (around Mar 19?) of ffmpeg3
 is fine because it doesn't cause errors but only warnings?

 The "text relocations" warned by ld.elf_so are actually deprecated,
 as mentioned in this message:
 It looks the relocations require a write permission during
 dynamic linking by ld.elf_so:
 I guess the result of the mprotect(2) depends on sysctl(3) settings:

 Maybe you omitted "options PAX_MPROTECT=1" from conf/GENERIC
 in your own kernel config?

 MPlayer 1.3.0-5.5.0 (C) 2000-2016 MPlayer Team
 224 audio & 451 video codecs
 Usage:   mplayer [options] [url|path/]filename
 Basic options: (complete list in the man page)
  -vo <drv>        select video output driver ('-vo help' for a list)
  -ao <drv>        select audio output driver ('-ao help' for a list)
  vcd://<trackno>  play (S)VCD (Super Video CD) track (raw device, no mount)
  dvd://<titleno>  play DVD title from device instead of plain file
  -alang/-slang    select DVD audio/subtitle language (by 2-char country code)
  -ss <position>   seek to given (seconds or hh:mm:ss) position
  -nosound         do not play sound
  -fs              fullscreen playback (or -vm, -zoom, details in the man page)
  -x <x> -y <y>    set display resolution (for use with -vm or -zoom)
  -sub <file>      specify subtitle file to use (also see -subfps, -subdelay)
  -playlist <file> specify playlist file
  -vid x -aid y    select video (x) and audio (y) stream to play
  -fps x -srate y  change video (x fps) and audio (y Hz) rate
  -pp <quality>    enable postprocessing filter (details in the man page)
  -framedrop       enable frame dropping (for slow machines)
 Basic keys: (complete list in the man page, also check input.conf)
  <-  or  ->       seek backward/forward 10 seconds
  down or up       seek backward/forward  1 minute
  pgdown or pgup   seek backward/forward 10 minutes
  < or >           step backward/forward in playlist
  p or SPACE       pause movie (press any key to continue)
  q or ESC         stop playing and quit program
  + or -           adjust audio delay by +/- 0.1 second
  o                cycle OSD mode:  none / seekbar / seekbar + timer
  * or /           increase or decrease PCM volume
  x or z           adjust subtitle delay by +/- 0.1 second
  r or t           adjust subtitle position up/down, also see -vf expand
 Even if the binaries work with warnings by disabiling security stuff,
 it will never be accepted by other developers.
 To solve the text relocations, you have to rewrite all ancient asm code
 to support PIE, as done is this xvid patch:
