Welcome to LQ.

Ref. post #2, @sem007 : The link to the current Rpmforge setup is missing
on the VLC site ( and not updated on the "Rpmforge How to use.." site ).
This will do :
http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-relea...l5.rf.i386.rpm
→ # rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Then you can do # yum install vlc ( Will also install the 40 dependencies.)

P.S. : The vlc './configure' must end this way ( else no Makefile ) :
((And all the prerequisites must be installed beforehand.))
Code:
libvlc configuration
--------------------
version               : 1.1.4
system                : linux
architecture          : i686 mmx sse sse2
build flavour         :
vlc aliases           : cvlc rvlc svlc qvlc
plugins/bindings      :

You can tune the compiler flags in vlc-config.
To build vlc and its plugins, type `./compile' or `make'.
