mplayer already supports it, it was added before avifile...
(about 4 weeks ago). I also wrote a mail about it to the list.

if you have properly installed libdivxdecore and decore.h,
then configure will detect it and compile support. then use
-vc divx4 to use it. and next time please RTFM DOCS/DivX4Linux

We don't write docs in purpose to make ourself happy. We do it to avoid
these mails... please read docs before sending such mail! thx.
