Emerge xine-ui fails

I've been trying to emerge xine-ui so I can play dvd's, but I keep getting this error. HELP! Thanks.

checking for xine-config... /usr/bin/xine-config
checking for XINE-LIB version >= 1.0.0...
*** 'xine-config --version' returned 1.1.0, but XINE (1.0.5)
*** was found! If xine-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of XINE. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If xine-config was wrong, set the environment variable XINE_CONFIG
*** to point to the correct copy of xine-config, and remove the file config.cache
*** before re-running configure
configure: error: *** You should install xine-lib first ***

!!! Please attach the config.log to your bug report:
!!! /var/tmp/portage/xine-ui-0.99.3/work/xine-ui-0.99.3/config.log

!!! ERROR: media-video/xine-ui-0.99.3 failed.
!!! Function econf, Line 485, Exitcode 0
!!! econf failed
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

As the error says, emerge xine-lib first. So do the following.

bash# emerge xine-lib
bash# emerge xine-ui

I've tried that already but emerge xine-ui always fails. Must be some link to the xine-lib library that is wrong. In which case, I don't know which link to fix.
