What happens if you put those files back? If everything works then, leave 
them alone.

Is that package actually and completely installed? (Maybe, maybe not, 
especially if you've been deleting associated files. In general, don't do 
that.) Try reinstalling it.

I also notice that you probably don't have up-to-date ffmpeg source because 
the configure check from a couple of days ago says-
enabled libvmaf           && require_pkg_config libvmaf "libvmaf >= 1.5.2"

Searching "libvmaf ffmpeg dylib" will turn up a few ideas.
