--enable-pp, --enable-gpl and --with-ffmpeg are not options from vlc's 
configure script so they are strictly useless (--enable-pp and --enable-gpl 
are options from ffmpeg's configure script but that's another matter 

--enable-plugins is already enabled by default so you can omit it.

--enable-xvid and --enable-dv are useless because the ffmpeg plugin is now 
used to decode xvid and dv. The xvid and dv plugins are a lot slower so 
there is strictly no point in using them.

Lastly, the xosd plugin is IMHO completely useless (I think it was more a 
proof of concept then anything really useful) so I don't think it is worth 
the extra dependencies (but then you might have a different opinion).
