Port: ffmpeg


ffmpeg @4.1.3 +gpl2+gpl3+nonfree+x11 will opportunistically link to /opt/local/lib/libXv.1.dylib (provided by xorg-libXv), even though this package is not on the library dependencies list. A later removal of this package breaks the ffmpeg installation.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Install xorg-libXv.
  • Install ffmpeg +gpl2+gpl3+nonfree+x11
  • Uninstall xorg-libXv. Note that there is no warning that ffmpeg requires the presence of xorg-libXv.
  • port notices broken package.
