Can you answer this question? I'd like to suggest a patch to your port
but can't do it without that information.

The error is identical at all systems, so there is no need to have all
of them. BTW, 7-STABLE and 8-CURRENT -i386 suffers the same error:,1.log,1.log

Actually, one shouldn't have all systems at hand -- ports-mgmt/tinderbox
is a great tool.

Well, as I'd said, I've read this thread. Actually, many times. ;-)
But nothing helped me.

Current multimedia/ffmpeg port uses --enable-swscale by default (since
10 Aug 2008) and doesn't have files/patch_zm_mpeg.cpp. That's why I
wrote "nothing helps".
