Mixing MacPorts with regular installations?

Hi, noob here.

Yesterday I installed MacPorts, and this night I had my pBook crunch  
out some pretty big installation (ffmpeg with a list of codecs). I  
turned to MacPorts because I gave up on installing all the video/ 
audio codec libraries my hand.

I actually want to use PyMedia (which is based upon ffmpeg, and which  
needs all the same codec libraries).
However, since my python lives in /url/local/bin/python and python's  
package installer easy_install lives in /Library/Frameworks/ 
Python.framework/Versions/2.5/bin/easy_install they do not recognize  
or find the codec libraries installed in /opt/local/bin

To install ffmpeg I installed this:
% sudo port install ffmpeg +lame +libogg +vorbis +xvid +x264 +a52  
+faac +faad +dts
% sudo easy_install PyMedia
is still saying:
OGG          : not found
VORBIS       : not found
FAAD         : not found
MP3LAME      : not found
VORBISENC    : not found
ALSA         : not found

How can I mix libraries installed with MacPorts, with normal  
installed packages?
Or how can I have python / easy_install recognize the libraries in /
