The question is not "doesn't transcode come with Xvid",
the question is "Did I configure transcode to use Xvid
while running the configure script?", or, "If I didn't pass
any options to transcode's configure script, did I make
sure Xvid isinstalled properly so transcode's configure
script can pick it up automagically?".
Mine does. I'm using transcode-0.6.10, divx4linux-20020418
