Thanks to all who responded. It appears that there are no options that will
allow that port to build due to a showstopper in libxine that portaudit
complains about. The weblink appears to say that it's fixed in this version,
but it appears that there's no way around it. I tried ports, packages, etc.,
and can't get it to be happy with libxine.
