Problems with multimedia/tovid

I'd like to call your attention to the bugs in tovid, which prevent it from 
being used on FreeBSD.

As currently installed by the port, the software is, frankly, unusable. The 
list, so far, is:

  * Invoking ffmpeg with /dev/zero for input causes it to die from SIGFPE
  * sleep(1) takes numeric arguments ONLY
    <>(patch included)

There is also at least one bogus invocation of sed (curly braces are used), for 
which I'm still researching a good replacement.

Please, add fixes to the port. Thank you! Yours,
