Hmm, for some reason, vlc port do not find the live liveMedia installation :
# make
checking for live555 version 1324598400 or later... no
configure: WARNING: liveMedia is missing or its installed version is too old:
Version 2011.12.23 or later is required to proceed.
You can get an updated one from .
configure: error: Update live555 or pass --disable-live555 to disable RTSP input support.

When looking at the config log :
configure:27786: clang++ -E -I/usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/fake/usr/local/include -I/usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-2.0.3/include  -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/local/ffmpeg    -I/usr/local/include/speex -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include/liveMedia -I/usr/include/groupsock -I/usr/include/BasicUsageEnvironment -I/usr/include/UsageEnvironment conftest.cpp
conftest.cpp:121:10: fatal error: 'liveMedia_version.hh' file not found
#include <liveMedia_version.hh>
1 error generated.
configure:27786: $? = 1

I've noticed that the patched version of net/liveMedia installed itself in /usr/local/live, is it normal? Am I missing something?
