I will try it this. In the meantime I decided just to try something,
but it seems that it wasn't a good idea. I changed the DISTNAME
in the old libdvdcss directory of pkgsrc from 
libdvdcss-0.0.3.ogle3 to libdvdcss-1.2.1 and simply made a make
update. IN order to try the version you proposed I wanted to 
delete the installed libdvdcss version. That's what I got:
root@trinity# pkg_info|grep libdvdcss
libdvdcss-1.2.1     library to access encrypted DVD
root@trinity# pkg_delete -f libdvdcss-ogle3
pkg_delete: package 'libdvdcss-ogle3' not installed
root@trinity# pkg_delete libdvdcss-1.2.1
pkg_delete: file `/usr/pkg/lib/' doesn't really exist
pkg_delete: file `/usr/pkg/lib/' doesn't really exist
pkg_delete: file `/usr/pkg/include/videolan/dvdcss.h' doesn't really exist
pkg_delete: couldn't entirely delete package `libdvdcss-1.2.1'
(perhaps the packing list is incorrectly specified?)

So I'm afraid that I have now a inconsistend pkg database.
