After lastest cvsup for the ports tree I can't install vlc. Looks like it's closely related to ldconfig.


Extras from make install:

install  -o root -g wheel -m 444 /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-0.8.5/doc/vlc.1 /usr/X11R6/man/man1/
install  -o root -g wheel -m 444 /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-0.8.5/doc/vlc-config.1 /usr/X11R6/man/man1/
if [ ! -d /usr/X11R6/share/applications ]; then  /bin/mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/share/applications ;  fi
if [ ! -d /usr/X11R6/share/pixmaps ]; then  /bin/mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/share/pixmaps ;  fi
install  -o root -g wheel -m 444 /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/files/wxvlc.desktop /usr/X11R6/share/applications

*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc.

Update the ports tree then go to /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc and run make install
As a temp. fix comment USE_LDCONFIG= yes in Makefile and re-run make install
