You have to run  configure  first. After that  make  should work.

DivX 4 is MPEG-4 compatible, and so is XVID, so decoding DIvX4 material
(not DivX3!) does work. Also DivX5 etc.

XVID is GPL, so every project based on XVID must at least be GPL again. 
LGPL is not enough.

No. Please use plain ASCII, just as for every sensible mailing list.
