Ah, jeez; this now seems to be a hunt for the fabled Snipe. I was under
the impression that the latest build was a truly new version; but
Freshports, as of December 11 2012, says:

## SVN ## Exported commit - http://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/base/308713

I did not think to look at Freshports prior to opening a report; but at
this point (and after reviewing the dates on the patches you mention,
below) I'd say the "new" version is not a new version at all.

What puzzled me was that heretofore Kino had no support for firewire on
FreeBSD[1]. I assumed that, perhaps, the inclusion of firewire code in
the "new" version was some sort of mistake or, if included because
firewire now worked on FreeBSD, there was a bug.

In retrospect, I suppose I should have looked at Freshports? But I
honestly did not know nor think that the switch to SVN was the source of
the "new" version. In fact, I'm not sure if that is what the SVN message
means; it may refer only to ImageMagick. Sigh.

As things stand now, Kino seems fine; and I don't recall if ffmpeg was
on in the config options for previous versions. I'll need a few more
days to see how it performs.

Best regards,


[1] libraw code and firewire capture is for Linux, AFAIK. But you
    probably know that.
