Yes about that. VLC requires a very recent (CVS) version of libmpeg2. I 
personally have a CVS tree of libmpeg2 on my machine that i use to 
install recent versions in /usr/local/lib (you probably forgot to 
bootstrap before trying to build libmpeg2 )
Christophe Massiot maintains the /usr/local/ package referenced on the 
build page, and will update this when he has the time  (actually when 
he has all the packages himself ).
