Hi there,

When I try to install the port www/mplayer-plugin I get this error after 
   I have compiled it and it tries to install it:

cp Source/nsIScriptableMplayerPlugin.xpt mplayerplug-in.xpt
--->  Installing the new version via the port with make flags:

I have resently run cvsup, so that should not be the problem where, did 
have the same problem yester day as well. Perhaps somebody could tell me 
what is wrong or correct the problem?

Please tell me if im forgetting to mention something importent as well. 
But this has nothing to do with the compilation process so it must be a 
"port" error.

Best Regards Mattias Björk
