As XMMS2 has a lot of USE-flags, you would want first to check them (and dependencies according to them), so you can set them before installation:
equery u xmms2 equery g xmms2
For more clients you would need to check custom overlays, but instead of adding them i would suggest just using ebuild for specific client you want.
THESE ARE UNOFFICIAL BUILDS, IT'S RECOMMENDED TO BUILD FROM SOURCE
Getting XMMS2 to build/run on Windows is mostly working, but not all features of XMMS2 are currently available on Windows, and some plugins are missing/broken. Also note that these packages have not been thoroughly tested by the XMMS2 team. See also: Windows.
Mac OS X
xmms2 is included in MacPorts. To install:
sudo port install xmms2
To see which optional features are available:
port variants xmms2
If the MacPorts port of xmms2 is out of date or needs to be enhanced in some way, please file a ticket in the MacPorts issue tracker.
- Build from source
If you prefer, you can install xmms2's dependencies, and then download the xmms2 source and configure it manually:
./waf configure --prefix=/opt/xmms2 --conf-prefix=/opt/xmms2 --nocache
./waf build && ./waf install
xmms2 is now included in the FreeBSD ports tree. It can be found in audio/xmms2.
A xmms2 pkgsrc package for NetBSD and other operating systems supported by pkgsrc is available at http://pkgsrc-wip.sourceforge.net/.
Note: you should read the Install instructions page as well.

- The GIT repository (with snapshots) is viewable at: http://git.xmms2.org
About the GIT repository:
- You would usually want code from the xmms2-stable.git tree. The latest (possibly unstable and buggy) code is in the xmms2-devel.git tree.
- If you have problems using snapshot tarballs, check the FAQ (e.g. Snapshot tarball full of random files and things about paxheader) and your relevant platform page.
