I report what I had to do to have a working system, with working
software and an up-to-date libvpx. I didn't update all the ports that
were bumped (54 for me, and they're all quite big, mostly
kde-related). But now I can't "portmaster -a" if I don't want to clog
my computer for hours... and all those bumps are useless in my case,
pkg_libchk confirms that nothing on my system was using libvpx except
