illegal hardware instruction

Bug Description

After upgrade to 12.04 mplayer2 no longer works:

  % mplayer
  zsh: illegal hardware instruction (core dumped) mplayer

I don't think this is bug #974125 or #858226 because I have a Pentium 4 with SSE & SSE2. Or those bugs aren't caused by what they suspect.
