ffmpeg is not being replaced by libmpeg2. VLC's own mpeg1/2 decoder was 
replaced with the libmpeg2 one.
ffmpeg takes care of DivX among others, so we would not soon replace 
that. It's also decodes Sorenson v3 (Quicktime movies ) since a week, 
so it definitely stays.

Currently you need the following configure line to build VLC by hand

./configure --disable-x11 --disable-xvideo --disable-gtk --disable-sdl 
--disable-wxwindows --enable-ffmpeg --enable-mad --enable-libdvbpsi 
--enable-a52 --enable-dvdplay --enable-faad --enable-vorbis 
--enable-ogg --enable-theora --enable-faac --with-included-gettext 

I don't think much changed. libmpeg2 will be auto dectected and always
