This is from a previous post:
Install the package amarok-engines and you should get all the engines. 
I  am pretty sure you do not need to rebuild amarok.
I know there is a decent xine engine (my favourite) and a ARTS engine. 
I think there is also a gstreamer engine in Breezy, but I don't see it 
on my dapper install.
