Thanks for your work. I had a look at the port and there are a few
things that we should resolve before the port is ready to get it into
the tree.

- add missing libltdl dependency (patch attached)
- add missing runtime dependency glxinfo (graphics/mesa-demos)
- fix graphics/mesa-demos port which is currently marked broken
- fix the compile problem in xbmc/cores/paplayer/SIDCodec (had a look
but could not find it yet)
- what does the NONFREE option mean? should we restrict the port? any
problems redistributing the distfile?
- find a better solution for the int casts because of the different
size of DWORD on linux and BSD
- port should use the upcoming release branch [1] or better the beta
release tags from [2] (not sure which one you use currently, trunk?)
