mplayer compilation fails

hey friends.
i'm trying to compile mplayer/mencoder (I need the "fribidi" flag on and my distro's package is shipped with it off.)
I am using ubuntu 10.04 on x86_64.
during the building process (make) it stops with the following error messages:

subreader.o: In function `sub_fribidi':
subreader.c.text+0x396): undefined reference to `fribidi_set_mirroring'
subreader.c.text+0x39d): undefined reference to `fribidi_set_reorder_nsm'
subreader.c.text+0x3bd): undefined reference to `fribidi_parse_charset'
subreader.c.text+0x42b): undefined reference to `fribidi_charset_to_unicode'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [mplayer] Error 1

ideas anyone?

What does the output of your configure line say about fribidi?

ohadb@ohadb-laptop:~/Downloads/mplayer-export-2010-09-01$ cat 1.1 | grep fribidi
Checking for fribidi with charsets ... yes
Config files successfully generated by ./configure --enable-fribidi !
