when attempting to build multimedia/vlc the vlc-cache-gen program crashes near the end of the build, if the 'PULSEAUDIO' option has been selected in the port configuration screen. Un-selecting this single option in the config screen enabled the port to build. Port version is vlc-2.1.2_2,4
de-select the PULSEAUDIO option in 'make config'
How-To-Repeat: select the 'PULSEAUDIO' option in 'make config', then 'make' or 'make install'

This might be a duplicate of ports/172185 - seems the rtld
fix mentioned there was not MFC'd all the way back to 8...
This should work on FreeBSD 9 and up. Is it possible for you to upgrade FreeBSD? Because then I don't have to spend time trying to figure out which patches need to be merged to 8.

- Mark IGNORE when trying to use pulseaudio with vlc on
pre-9.x systems due to an rtld issue during build
Submitted by: firstname.lastname@example.org
For now, mark port IGNORE if pulseaudio is selected on 8.x systems.
1) It is not enabled by default
2) There will not be another release from stable/8
3) Works as intended on 9.x and later
If it is possible to fix this on a port level, patches are, of course, always welcome!
