It looks like you might have archivers/lzmautils installed instead of archivers/xz; try deinstalling that instead, and then let multimedia/ffmpeg install the one it wants.

If "make deinstall" doesn't do it, then "pkg_info | grep lzma" or "pkg_info | grep xz" might tell you which one you have installed, and pkg_delete -f can be fed the name of the package you do have...
