Ah, didn't pay attention to mine configure... I was look at  
mjpegtools/Makefile as it was supposed to be disable by default in my  
system when I don't have gtk12.. Surpised me that it enables and works  
with gtk2 as when I ran glav. I will have to dig in mjpegtools more, then  
fix Makefile/pkg-plist and bump the PORTREVISION.
