What is the recommended way of building multimedia/vlc on FreeBSD?

There are three entries under ports... vlc, vlc3 and vlc-qt4. I don't know the differences between are. How do I tell?

Thanks for the info...

I decided to try and build multimedia/vlc3 and get:-

Code:

What to do?
Paying better attention to /usr/ports/UPDATING ;)

Code:
$ make search name=glproto |less                                                
Port:   x11/glproto
Moved:  x11/xorgproto
Date:   2018-07-31
Reason: merged into x11/xorgproto
See 20180731 in /usr/ports/UPDATING.

(edit)

Though there seems to be something icky going on wrt. xorgproto (either that or I am overlooking the obvious):

Code:
peter@zefiris:/home/peter $ pkg updating -d 20180701 xorgproto
peter@zefiris:/home/peter $ pkg updating -d 20180701 | grep xorgproto
  x11/xorgproto.  This might cause issues with upgrading.  If you
  get conflicts between xorgproto and old *proto packages, please
  remove the old package and install xorgproto again.
peter@zefiris:/home/peter $ pkg updating -d 20180701 x11/xorgproto   
peter@zefiris:/home/peter $ pkg updating -d 20180701 x11\/xorgproto
peter@zefiris:/home/peter $
Seems pkg-updating(8) doesn't grok x11/xorgproto for some reason.

Thanks for the pointer, I would never have come across this if you hadn't mentioned /usr/ports/UPDATING :-

20180731:
AFFECTS: users of x11/xorg and all ports with USE_XORG=*proto
AUTHOR: zeising@FreeBSD.org

The xorg *proto packages have all been merged into one package,
x11/xorgproto. This might cause issues with upgrading. If you
get conflicts between xorgproto and old *proto packages, please
remove the old package and install xorgproto again.

In order to remove all orphaned ports, including all *proto port,
the following can be used after the ports tree has been updated:
pkg version -l \? | cut -f 1 -w | grep -v compat | xargs pkg delete -fy
The problem I encountered was fixed by running:-

pkg version -l \? | cut -f 1 -w | grep -v compat | xargs pkg delete -fy

Is this to be expected when trying to build multimedia/vlc3

FWIW, I just rebuilt multimedia/vlc on 2 of my laptops a couple days ago with no problems. It's the version I've always used.

I still have last years Christmas version with the blue and while icon on my X61 but I don't update it since it stays offline.
