Dear Crux,
I was not able to compile sox, because of missing files:

I found, that these files are compiled into sox, when the libao port is installed first.
SOX is now not dependent on libao, please add this port to dependencies

This task depends upon

I have no idea what your on about there. libao is not listed as a dependency.

"SOX is now not dependent on libao, please add this port to dependencies"
That makes absolutely no sense.

sox will have new files and a footprint mismatch if you happen to have more ports that sox can compile agenst. This is safe to ignore and install anyways, you'll get that extra functionality.

There is no requirement to list all ports sox can use and I list required ports to build and the most popular only as i see fit. Anything else to say please try to word it so as not to be a oxymoron, thanks.
