I am able to build successfully mplayer on F14 x86_64 using the source
from subversion at the mplayer website.

When building from source, their README requires running ./configure,
though they say that they aren't actually running the autoconf version
but an emulation they wrote.  This discovers all the libraries and adds
them to the linker line.

I noticed that your linker line had no -ltinfo in it, so compiling from
the source RPM didn't perform this step, it seems.  Maybe the
maintainer doesn't have this library installed.  I *think* there is a
config include that with this information, so you could add it manually
and it should work.

Probably a good thing to document this with a bugzilla.
