The problem was related to me cleaning up the SPEC file and adding options 
to force mplayer to use libfaac, and not ffmpeg's faac. From the buildlog 
diff:

 	-Checking for FAAC support ... yes (in libavcodec: no)
 	+Checking for FAAC support ... yes (in libavcodec: yes)

I thought it was better to use libfaac, but I reverted this (and a few 
other ffmpeg items) after your report.
