I sent this to the maintainer named in the makefile but have not heard 
back. The port of Lilypond has been marked broken for quite a while but 
the fix is simple. I hope this is of some help to you.

I have managed to get lilypond 2.2.2 working on FreeBSD 5.3 but I am not
familiar enough with the ports system to attempt to send a repaired port.
However, I repaired problems as they appeared during the build process
and here is a description of what I did.

Commented out the BROKEN line in Makefile.

In file work/lilypond-2.2.2/lily/
Inserted before line 30 the line:
This turns off some code which fails to compile.

In file work/lilypond-2.2.2/lily/out/FlexLexer.h
Changed several instances of std::std:: to std::
Changed several instances of std:std:: to std::

After these changes the port compiled, installed and ran properly.

I hope this is of some help.
