That means that MacPorts is broken or it - by definition 
- does not cover additional self-compiled packages (like 
FFmpeg in this case). Whenever a MacPorts update removes 
existing dynamic libraries (in this case libass.4.dylib) 
this can happen if you ever compile additional binaries 

There is nothing in FFmpeg that can be fixed about this.
