A quick bug-check says it's a known issue, related to a conflict between
the portage sandbox and openal. USE=-openal works for many, if you don't
specifically need openal, of course, otherwise, consider FEATURES=-
sandbox (which is a bit safer if you run FEATURES=userpriv).
You may wish to CC yourself to that bug.
FWIW I seem to have missed the bug as emerge --pretend mplayer says I
have USE=-openal (which euse -i says is open audio library, but that's
about all I know about it).
