So a bit more of reports :
FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE-p3
CC=clang CXX=clang++ CPP=clang-cpp (base system version)

All ports up to date from a portsnap run, built with WITH_NEW_XORG and using the x11/nvidia-driver x11 driver (GeForce 8800GT).

need the fix above to build with livemedia support

fails to load qt interface :
% vlc
VLC media player 2.0.3 Twoflower (revision 2.0.2-93-g77aa89e)
[0x802055198] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
[0x8021909d8] main interface error: corrupt module: /usr/local/lib/vlc/plugins/gui/
Remote control interface initialized. Type `help' for help.

The strange thing is it worked with the vlc-2.0.3-001.patch version. cvlc is running fine. Building with base gcc/g++ is also fine.
