I just happened to read the install instructions for the VLC Media 
Player on

I don't think that these directions are up to date.
First of all it should be recommended to use the OPTIONS framework 
instead of specifying parameters on the command line and the 
FORCE_PKG_REGISTER=yes parameter is not needed and can break things.

As this mailing list is listed as maintainer for the vlc ports I thought 
you could perhaps contact the VideoLAN people and discuss these install
