Comment 4 Mikhail T. 2010-01-05 19:28:25 UTC
I'd like to commit this along with a change, that removes major numbers 

The current situation -- painful everywhere, but especially on ports 
with a large number of frequently-changing dependencies -- is that a lot 
of things end up rebuilt gratuitously... For example, someone may 
install mplayer today, update their ports tree tomorrow, and try to add 
vlc on Sunday.

If the major number of any of the shared libraries (libfoo installed by 
graphics/foo), that both mplayer and vlc use, changes, addinging vlc 
will fail. Instead of simply building vlc, the user will have to:

   1. Uninstall mplayer.
   2. Uninstall foo.
   3. Build a new version of foo.
   4. Rebuild mplayer.
   5. Rebuild vlc.

Yet in almost all cases vlc does not really care, whether the libfoo is 
version 48 or 51... Forcing such a rebuild is completely unnecessary...

Over to maintainer.
Comment 6 Joseph S. Atkinson 2010-01-07 06:28:49 UTC
Removing shared library tracking from VLC would be a very bad thing.
When shlibs change numbers, so does their functionality. Sometimes they
may be backwards compatible, but not always. Plus, with the way that VLC
uses bleeding edge features willy nilly, and FreeBSDs librabries are
sometimes lagging behind current, keeping these updated sometimes opens
new features or better performance.

I cannot approve this, shlib tracking is implemented in all of the ports
tree for a reason. Port updating utilities generally provide a way to
skip updating of specific ports if you so desire.

Resolve the confusion: I am not the maintainer of this port.
