Hi there, 
  I get the following error when I try to portinstall VLC on my machine
running FreeBSD6.1 Stable:

configure: error: libdirac doesn't appear to be installed on you system.
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to multimedia at [maintainer] and
the "/usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-0.8.5/config.log" including the
of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to
an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. an `ls
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc.
** Command failed [exit code 1]: /usr/bin/script -qa
/tmp/portinstall776.0 make
** Fix the problem and try again.
** Listing the failed packages (*:skipped / !:failed)
        ! multimedia/vlc        (configure error)
--->  Packages processed: 0 done, 0 ignored, 0 skipped and 1 failed

   Please find attached the failed output of the port install, a list of
the packages installed on my machine and the contents of
/usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-0.8.5/config.log. I'd appreciate
finding out what's going wrong here.
   Many thanks,
