I don't know, I don't use tee, I just dump it all to a log file and look 
at it later if I need to. Try:

make install &> LogFile.txt

A google search for "error: 'IVTV_ IOC_STOP_DECODE' undeclared" gets no 
results, which suggests that you've done something creative and unusual.
You might have better luck if you try a more recent version of mplayer. 
Current svn compiles for me on both i686 and x86_64 (though it seems 
more buggy on i686).
