That is the wrong mode.  Should be 0555, change with:

# chmod 555 /opt/csw/bin/isaexec

They are hard links so the one chmod will change mplayer and other.

Check the mode with:

$ pkgchk -l -p /opt/csw/bin/isaexec
Pathname: /opt/csw/bin/isaexec
Type: regular file
Expected mode: 0555
Expected owner: root
Expected group: bin
Expected file size (bytes): 5256
Expected sum(1) of contents: 64355
Expected last modification: Jan 05 11:51:20 PM 2000
Referenced by the following packages:
Current status: installed

I've just test install all the packages that use isaexec and
none change this mode.  CSWiaexec creates this file by
cp -p /usr/lib/isaexec so perhaps the mode of that is wrong?

Whatever the reason your mode is set as it is the mode should
be 0555, so run the chmod and try mplayer again.
