Build and runs are good, but does it still need to change the Makefile for  
dependency? For example, in graphics/gstreamer-plugins-libcaca, only thing  
that I have to change is:


# ldd /usr/local/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstcacasink.so | grep libcaca
         libcaca.so.0 => /usr/local/lib/libcaca.so.0 (0x284de000)

Also, it builds with -lcaca so libxine might be still need to be check for  
that too.

BTW: I am going to give another week to let other maintainers to catch up  
with my email. If they don't then I shall commit it anyway.
