Oh please...

No, you cannot concatenate AVI-files because of header and index and audio 
and everything. You _can_ concatenate the MPEG-4 streams, that are 
embedded into the AVI. 
You didn't say anything about AVIs in your mail, you said "videos" and 
"XVID". Since you work in a company which deals with 
"Unterhaltungselektronik" I though you knew the difference. And, I 
thought that you might have googled before posting to this list, which, as 
you might have seen from its name, is about _development_ of XviD, not 
about AVI containers. 
Google gives you hundreds of pages on how to make a Single AVI file out of 
many one without reencoding. 

Anyway, to spare you the work: using Linux, there is a simple command line 
util called "avimerge", that's e.g. part of transcode. That does the job.
