AFAIK libavcodec and xvid can open DivX files just fine (maybe not the
newer ones?)

I would say use the official one

from looking at the dependencies I see support for these codecs:

audio: aac (faac, faad2), mp3 (lame), mp1/2/3 (libmad),
       vorbis (libvorbis), AC3 (liba52)
video: mpeg (mjpegtools), avi (xvid)

I think the only canditates for exclusion are aac and vorbis.
the others are too common to be left out IMO (think dvd/vcd/avi)

btw the website says that libmad is used for mp3, too, so i wonder what
the dependency to lame is for
