Im trying to get a new install going, and it wont let me install
win32-codecs (and therefor mplayer and xine and everything i 
need to watch multimedia). Its marked as "forbidden: remote
code execution". The URL it gives just shows why it can be
dangerous.

Is there any workaround, or a way to force this? Im willing to
 take the chance and i never view quicktime websites anyway,
and its hard not to watch movies on this new machine!

Thanks!

Taken from post October of last year:
  
    As per the ports(7) man page:

     DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES
                   If defined, disable check for security vulnerabilities
                   using portaudit(1) (ports/security/portaudit) when 
                   installing new ports.

   i.e.:

   cd /usr/ports/www/mozilla
   DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES=1 make install
  
 here is the post http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2006-October/036276.html

Ah, thanks! I did search back to December or so but thought that
this would have come up then, and i checked UPDATING and there
was nothing there so i gave up. I should have checked further. Thanks
to you and to Kelly (separate reply, also worked) for getting me on
the right path.
