I have updated ffmpeg, and I'm still bombing out with the same error.  I
installed lzo2 as well per the suggestions of another, and this also did
not fix the issue.

I suspect this has to do with the fact that I'm on 6.3-STABLE, and the
port probably works fine for 7.X.  I continuously get bit by these damn
problems, and generally the breakage is so low-level that it requires a
port expert to resolve.  It would be helpful if there was a way for mere
mortals to help themselves in these cases.
