Hm... sounds slightly overweight to me, but I'm not an expert on the 
MinGW/MSYS side, so I don't know exactly what's going wrong. Maybe

Yep. (Well, ffplay is only built if you have SDL.) You can find out by 
doing "touch ffserver.c" (for example), then calling make. You'll see it 
rebuild ffserver.
