I get the same thing on my amd64 machine. I am unaware of any fix. The
cvs tree on sourceforge (for faac) has not been updated since Feb.
'05, but then the version the port downloads has "2003-11-24" as the
last entry in the ChangeLog.  I compiled the version from cvs rebuilt
everything that depended on faac. I stopped seeing that error message,
but I still get no sound. Infact mplayer now claims there is no sound
on the mp4 files. I use ffmpeg with pretty much the same options to
create the mp4 files.
