   - mplayer is not in testing and stable, only in unstable. Julian could
 you write a script to see which packages are only in a certain feed. E.g.
 what is in stable not in testing and unstable.

   - And mplayer is not in the task-openmoko-feed so I wonder how it ended
 up there, it nicely illustrates how we don't remove packages when we
 remove them from the stuff we build. Maybe we should delete the
 "do_package" stamps before a build so "unsupported" packages vanish (not
 saying that mplayer should vanish).

   - I downloaded

   - The mplayer binary inside this package has a bad RPATH.
 Julian/John/XorA could you please check if insane.bbclass was inherited in
 the unstable build and then check why it didn't detect this RPATH. IIRC
 likewise fixed that part of my code some time ago.

   - And yes with the above named package mplayer links to libXv and
 libmp3lame and they are not in the Depends of the control file.
