I had run csup with ports-multimedia since the first libvpx error came up!.
Libvpx was already up to date by the way, and correctly installed. So i did
not Symlink a library to any "missing version".

"Selectively updating ports is not supported".  Then I must wonder why do
we have the option to put "ports-{$port}" inside the supfile, and not a
mandatory ports-all.

As far as I could find, this seems to be the latest version.
