Hmmm i think libxvidencore0 is pretty old iirc, moreover, because of
this, it disobeys all debian policies appliable to libs. You'd better
use the package available on my site, which is lintian error free. But
afaik, avifile doesn't support XviD API4 libs (1.0 series).

Raaaaaa, why did he not mention this to xvid-devel in november ?!
Much work has been done since november and it will (probably) be a pita
to integrate those changes in todays source. Anyway, it's better to
know this now than never. What branch is it based on ?
Ok, i'll have to stop on this for now as i'm pretty short on time. My
ever growing week end task list has now a new item: x86-64 required
