About the patches themselves: When I tried to apply the patches from 
/usr/ports/multimedia/, the cuse4bsd one tried to patch 
/usr/ports/multimedia/Makefile. I applied them from the subdirectories, 
but had to specify the location of files/*. Eventually, all hunks applied.

# webcamd -d 0.5 -H

# webcamd -d 0.5 -H

This goes on with one line a second. kaffeine still does not know about 
my DVB-T stick.

Yesterday, I tried the snv version of webcamd (but not cuse4bsd at that 
time). It did not print the lines: "Waiting for HAL USB device." Anyhow, 
kaffeine did not work and I verified with lshal that webcamd did not 
change anything in hal.

Cheers,
Jan Henrik
