I also am experiencing this problem, but I've developed a workaround, as
de/reinstalling doesn't seem to do anything, as well as making distclean.
The problem occurs within the smb access module of vlc. Navigate to
/usr/ports/multimedia/vlc and do a "make config" to get to the options
menu, then uncheck the smb module. Accept the changes and do a "make
install" and things will work for you.
I'm no expert, but I'm guessing that removing the smb functionality in
this manner will prevent one from directly accessing smb shares via the
vlc interface. If you fall into this situation, I'd suggest mounting
the share via mount_smbfs.
