I was trying to build mplayer tonight, and I ran into a problem with net/liveMedia. The port that I've got calls for the build done on 10.24.2003. This file was unavailable on *any* of the listed mirrors, with the closest match being one built on 10.30.2003. I got around this problem by putting the file into /usr/ports/distfiles, and then modifying two files in /usr/ports/net/liveMedia; Makefile and distfile. I found that there was only on reference to the filename in the Makefile, so I changed it, and then I generated an MD5 on the file that I had and put it into distfile. After all of that foolishness mplayer built just fine.
My question is this; am I on the right track, or am I going to screw something up if I keep using this slash-and-burn method? I'm new to FBSD (and *NIX), but this method seemed like it'd work. I'd just hate to do something that's going to bite me in the ass later on. Also, what do I have to do to the permissions of /dev/dvd so that I can open a DVD in userspace. Right now I have to sudo mplayer to watch a movie, and that seems silly.
