I was trying to build vlc, had the same problem, and found out the following:
(I've upgraded to `FreeBSD _name_ 9.2-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE-p1' meanwhile)
1. After bad installation try, there happen to stay vlc shared libs in
/usr/local/lib/ and in /usr/local/lib/vlc/, also include files in
/usr/local/include/vlc, they can make troubles. I had to manually find and
2. The vlc-cache-gen problem (core dump on "GEN ../modules/plugins.dat" step)
happen on the install stage. That is, if you'll just `make', you'll get that
plugins.dat file (I had) in modules directory, but trying to install working (!)
vlc afterwards ends up in "Segmentation fault". (By the way, do not skip item
3. So, if you do `make', then comment out six lines in
work/vlc-2.1.0/bin/Makefile section "../modules/plugins.dat:", you have the
