somehow I failed to reproduce that bug on my setup

by pure curiosity do you have restrictive CFLAGS in make.conf ?

this file fails to #include <inttypes.h>

I removed the previous patch which used short instead of int16_t because I failed to understand what was its purpose.

I will open a PR with a patch shortly.

In the meantime you can:

cd /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc
make patch
vi work/vlc-0.8.6h/modules/visualization/galaktos/PCM.c
i#include <inttypes.h>
make all deinstall reinstall clean

Thanks for the report
