libdca is marked "RESTRICTED=Unresolved patent issue".
This means you have to figure out if it's legal for you, and, if it
is, build it yourself.
You might also try building vlc directly; there are several versions
in pkgsrc, and it looks like the only binary package posted is for one
of the older ones. The newer ones apparently don't build on netbsd-5,
but if you don't mind tinkering it may be possible to fix at least
multimedia/vlc2, and libdca is optional and disabled by default there.
