After installing some development libraries it builds video-outs of xv
and gl. On this system, -vo xv does not work correctly in fullscreen,
because it does not draw the black bars, except the top one (left &
right, or bottom one are missing). Thos wirks fine with -vo gl.

This does not happen with the Ubuntu MPlayer package:
MPlayer 1.3.0 (Debian), built with gcc-7 (C) 2000-2016 MPlayer Team
Here both -vo xv and -vo gl produce black borders as needed.

Since I have not used a self-compiled MPlayer on that system before,
I cannot say if this is a recent problem or not.  I intend to test
the current SVN version of MPlayer on another system where I have used
self-compiled MPlayer exclusively, soon.

Inside every large problem is a small problem struggling to get out.
