Found it and it's sysinstall's fault.
A file that is a part of the multimedia/gstreamer-plugins port may appear 
to have a corrupted filename when the ports collection is installed using 
sysinstall(8). This should not affect building the port or installing the 
corresponding package. However, it is recommended to rename the file in 
question, to prevent problems during any future updates to the installed 
ports collection:

# cd /usr/ports/multimedia/gstreamer-plugins/files
# mv patch-gst-libs_ext_ffmpeg_ffmpeg_libavcodec_alpha_simple_i \

Now, I remember why CVSup couldn't find this file. :-)
