Absolutely right. You only need to take care in case that you  
installed 3rd party software with MacPorts, which is also used within  
VLC's contribs. You might run into problems here if the installed  
versions aren't compatible. However, using mingw32 from MacPorts to  
compile VLC on a Mac for Win32 works nicely.

There is some strange stuff going on there right now. However, I've  
just switched the protocol to download this package using HTTP from  
the same server. So, just update your git checkout and try again.
