You can go to and click on "mailing lists" which will take you to

Note that "port outdated" only shows you the list of ports that are outdated; if you actually want to upgrade those ports, you would use "sudo port upgrade outdated".

The fact that it went from "Computing dependencies" straight to "Building" (skipping "Fetching", "Checksumming", "Extracting", "Patching" and "Configuring") tells us there was a previous build attempt. If that previous attempt was for the previous version of ffmpeg-devel, MacPorts should have noticed that and cleaned it out. But let's make sure. Try cleaning ffmpeg-devel and then installing it again.

sudo port clean ffmpeg-devel
sudo port install ffmpeg-devel
