I installed audio/gstreamer1-plugins-lame (as required by xfce4-goodies -> xfburn) from pkg (probably sometime between when 12.1-RC2 came out and the release of 12.1 itself), and some time thereafter, I started getting a "pkg: gstreamer1-plugins-lame has a missing dependency: lame" message. I think this means that at some point lame (as a package) disappeared from under gstreamer1-plugins-lame. More information available upon request.
The discussion in https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=242528 looks relevant to this PR as well, so perhaps the solution is similar: a pkg-message for audio/gstreamer1-plugins-lame with install and remove messages. I'm unsure, however, where that pkg-message would live: in the slave port or the master port multimedia/gstreamer1-plugins.
Per bug 228441 until we enable packaging of lame, a pkg-message may be the best UX option we have in the meantime. If there is otherwise no other change proposal intended here (except enabling lame packaging), please include a patch to add a pkg-message accordingly, per ports r520114 (via Kai, cc'd)

Tested by building each port and checking the message was displayed.
CC'ing portmgr@ at Zeising's direction in IRC, to try moving this forward.

To clarify a bit for portmgr:
Since this involves lame, which is a bit problematic, I'd like portmgr@ to have a look as well, just in case.
