 The dvdrtools port is at version 0.2.1 but version 0.3.1 was released in
 Feb 2006. The port is unmaintained. The port should be updated.

 A build problem with 0.2.1 has been [http://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail
 /macports-users/2008-April/010020.html reported]. Unknown so far if this
 can be reproduced on another system or whether 0.3.1 will fix it.

 The project's homepage has changed. The [http://www.nongnu.org/dvdrtools/
 homepage URL listed in the port] says the project has moved to a
 [http://www.arklinux.org/projects/dvdrtools/ new URL] but at the new URL
 it just says "This page is temporarily down because of spammer attacks;
 until it comes back, you can download dvdrtools from svn". So we could
 have the dvdrtools 0.3.1 port download from svn, or we could use a tarball
 I found [http://www.sfr-fresh.com/unix/privat/ here] which I think I
 prefer since that way we can verify the download with checksums, we can
 cache the download in the distfiles directory, and we don't force people
 to install Subversion just for this.
