I think this codec has license restrictions. See section 19.1.3 in

It seems that you are trying to build some multimedia package. Can you determine exactly which package it is?. Maybe ffmpeg?.

Furthermore, which version of pkgsrc are you using?
2018-Q1, or what? And also in which architecture?

Here http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-bulk/tindex.html yo can see last results building packages from source, for example 2018-Q1 in both x32 or x86_64 fails to build ffmpeg1, but I don't know if that is your situation.

Even right now I don't know why you need any multimedia package to build xfce4-meta, an initial search in pkgsrc.se doesn't show that you need anyone to build xfce4...

Prior to switching to pulseaudio, XFCE4 used gstreamer for for audio volume applets and desktop sounds. Could gstreamer be pulling in ffmpeg?

I agree with @pygope, look at the bulk builds by the NetBSD project. If it does not build for them, it is unlikely to build cleanly on a local system.

I recently installed the bulk build of lxde and it would not work out-of-the-box.

You have to export the XDG paths as described here:
https://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd...msg019993.html

NetBSD lxde would also not utilize locale/pkg_path settings in .profile, they had to be in ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession.

Also another observation: NetBSD XFCE and LXDE ports were contributed by the same individual and he did not appear to get much support from the project. There have been no commits to LXDE since May 2016. XFCE was migrated to gtk3 about 10 months ago.

Hello,

I maintain packages for XFCE and LXDE and MATE on NetBSD. I just fixed the LXDE startlxde long standing issue it should be fine now.

The sound backend for XFCE hasn't been made to work with NetBSD yet. FWIW MATE's sound applet works fine on NetBSD

Please keep reporting issues here or at my email, youri@NetBSD.org !
