This isn't a bug in PC-BSD. It just means that when the ISO for 1.5 was 
created, an older version of imlib2 was in ports. All you need to do to 
resolve your issue is:

cd /usr/ports/graphics/imlib2
make deinstall
make reinstall
make clean

Then you may resume building vlc with no ill effects :)

>lc.tbz' by URL

This isn't a bug in PC-BSD either. It just means that FreeBSD choose not to 
provide a binary vlc package in their 6.3-release repository.
