By the way (this probably doesn't make a difference but) you don't need to run the cc command (or any compile command) under sudo. Can you double check that you get the same result without using sudo. Finally, can you run this after the compile command:

echo $?

This should say whether the compile succeeded.

ok .... the logfile said :
============ Checking for VDPAU ============

#include <vdpau/vdpau_x11.h>
int main(void) {
  (void)vdp_device_create_x11(0, 0, 0, 0);
  return 0; }

cc -Wall -Wno-switch -Wpointer-arith -Wredundant-decls -O4 -march=native -mtune=native -pipe -ffast-math -fomit-frame-pointer  -I/usr/include/directfb     -lncurses  -ldirectfb  -lXext -lX11 -lpthread  -o /tmp/mplayer-conf--16505 /tmp/mplayer-conf--16505.c -lvdpau

Result is: yes 
run compiler without sudo:

bex@bex-vdr:/usr/local/src/mplayer-vdpau-3076399/mplayer-vdpau$ cc -Wall -Wno-switch -Wpointer-arith -Wredundant-decls -O4 -march=native -mtune=native -pipe -ffast-math -fomit-frame-pointer  -I/usr/include/directfb     -lncurses  -ldirectfb  -lXext -lX11 -lpthread  -o autodetect autodetect.c -lvdpau
/usr/bin/ld: cannot open output file autodetect: Permission denied
collect2: ld gab 1 als Ende-Status zurück
bex@bex-vdr:/usr/local/src/mplayer-vdpau-3076399/mplayer-vdpau$ echo $?
its clear, i compiled in "/usr/local/src", so root is the owner of this direction.

run compiler with sudo :

bex@bex-vdr:/usr/local/src/mplayer-vdpau-3076399/mplayer-vdpau$ sudo cc -Wall -Wno-switch -Wpointer-arith -Wredundant-decls -O4 -march=native -mtune=native -pipe -ffast-math -fomit-frame-pointer  -I/usr/include/directfb     -lncurses  -ldirectfb  -lXext -lX11 -lpthread  -o autodetect autodetect.c -lvdpau
bex@bex-vdr:/usr/local/src/mplayer-vdpau-3076399/mplayer-vdpau$ echo $?
