I enabled Xv in the package last time I updated it (a couple of weeks
ago), so you have probably run Xv-less before, so it is not lack of
Xv that makes it slow. OTOH, the fallback code might have problems,
so you could try to remove the line

MAKE_FLAGS+=            X11_XV=1

in the pkg's Makefile, and see if that helps.
