The problem is with the quicktime codecs. Go to the port directory, do a 
make config  and deselect quicktime.

For future reference, having a quick look at the Makefile will often point you 
in the right direction. In this case:

.if defined(WITH_QUICKTIME)
FORBIDDEN=      Remote code execution:
ADDITIONAL_CODECS_DISTFILES+=   qt63dlls-20050115.tar.bz2 \
