I tried to install the AviDemux video editing program on my new
FreeBSD desktop system. With the regular "pkg install" command,
it didn't work, complained about some "size mismatch" and "cannot
continue", so I decided to build from ports. This worked just as
intended. Only a few dependencies were actually built.

Surprise - for avidemux-2.6.11_14, no binary got installed!
Just libs and headers, verified by "pkg info -l avidemux".
Currently installed (on FreeBSD 12.0-p3 i386):


On my old system (which is FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE i386), I have:


And there is of course a set of binaries, avidemux2_cli and
avidemux2_gtk (which I use).

Did I miss something important? Well, obviously I did, but what
could it have been?
