<sigh> Not for me. I get the same error message as before. I wonder what's
making the difference for you...
This is frustrating because I removed win32-codecs in order to rebuild avifile
without win32... but apparently that can't be done. Now I'm stuck with
several ports that won't upgrade due to a dependency on avifile (which still
depends on win32-codecs...) with the result that my pgkdb demands to
be -F'd.. and I have nothing to replace the missing dependencies with. :(
And the worst part is, I don't ever use quicktime.. :P
Sure the Almighty created the world in only six days,
but He didn't have an established user-base.
