 That should work.  I'll be out of the country on holiday for a month
 beginning the last week in May so I was hoping to get the ffmpeg 3.0.2
 update out early next week to allow time for any issues to settle before I
 take off.

 conflict with the stable ffmpeg version.

 not to conflict with the "real" FFMpeg port.


 > As to VLC and libVLC: I've thought about that, but you've probably seen
 that there's no way to build just libVLC. For port:libVLC I just delete
 everything not related to the library in the post-destroot. There also is
 no way to build the rest VLC against an existing libVLC, so basically we'd
 be looking at a port which builds everything twice, and then throws away a
 considerable part of each build. That's not so much of an issue for the
 build bots, but with a port that has so many options there must be more
 than a few users even with the /opt/local prefix who end up building from
 > In case it isn't clear: port:VLC does provide libVLC, so a dependency on
 that library can be satisfied by either port:libVLC or port:VLC .

 Of course, no problem.  What about VLC-devel?  It's currently unmaintained
 and I'm not sure of it's value.  Are you planning on updating it to the
 latest git master?  The version you submitted in #47313 got lost in the
 shuffle, is out of date and should probably match whatever you're planning
 for VLC in structure. Or can we just nuke it?
