compiling MPlayer, can't detect X11 during configure.


Background:
Mplayer 1.0pre6a was compiled and installed. Working well. GUI enabled.
System is running Slackware-current which has been through several glibc upgrades.

Now:
Trying to compile MPlayer 1.0pre7 with gui enabled as well.

The configuration script can't detect X11 and complain that X11 is needed for gui.
The following is the message I extract from configure.log
Code:
============ Checking for X11 headers presence ============
Result is: yes (using /usr/X11/include)
##########################################

============ Checking for X11 libs presence ============
Result is: yes (using /usr/X11R6/lib)

Oh, I do have X11 up and running.

Is this caused by glibc upgrades? By the way, I have also compiled gcc-4.0 and installed it with program prefix, so that shouldn't cause too much problem.

How can I solved this with gui enabled?

I run slackware-current myself, although i last compiled mplayer quite some time ago. Your errors certainly suggest to me that its having issues from a brand spanking new version of Glibc. Looks as if its problem is that something its linking to was compiled with the old glibc, while its compiling itself with the newer one? Just a guess, hopefully thats in some small way helpful.

I think you are on the right track,may need to recompile xorg with gcc 4.0.
Just to make sure you are using 4
gcc --version

Ah, the latest X11 update on Slackware-current fix that problem for me.

Hmm, looks like PV have to compile a lot other progs which was compiled under older glib.
