First, this should go to either the maintainers of the port in
question *win32-codecs", or to ports if there is no maintainer.

In this case, update win32-codecs without Quicktime and make sure that
the portaudit db is up to date. It will then build. There is a
vulnerability in the Quicktime codec, so as lint as it is not built
(and it is not, by default, in the new version), you should have no

Since you were failing to build the latest version, I assume that the
database is out of date or that you chose to build it with Quicktime. To
change your build options, use "cd /usr/ports/multimedia/win32-codecs &&
make config".
