funny you should ask that right at this time :)
only yesterday i've fixed xine-lib (cvs) to compile on my freebsd box
again. you need to have the port /usr/ports/converters/libiconv (a recent
version) installed (configure doesn't check for this yet, but hopefully
it will, soon).
also you should add this line to xine-lib/src/libsputext/Makefile.am:
xineplug_decode_sputext_la_LIBADD = -lgiconv
(this should be added to cvs of course, but i am hoping daniel will look
into the details of adding that in a freebsd-specific manner :))
please try if you can successfully compile xine-lib from cvs and tell me
about your findings :-) as i've done my testing only via remote ssh access
i can't say anything about video playback, but the xine-ui window came up
and the console output looked reasonable to me ;)

xine-lib (and -ui) from cvs should now compile cleanly on freebsd (thanks
to daniels changes this night :)).
