Actually it's not at all a problem... but you are right. Compile of
current ffmpeg just finished:

Forcing video codec: [ffdivx] drv:5 (FFmpeg DivX ;-) (MS MPEG-4 v3))
vo: X11 running at 800x600 depth: 32 ("mathsun17:201.0"
=> remote display)
libavcodec.size: 720 x 416
incorrect codes

So "somebody" broke ffdivx for Solaris into pieces.

Who's going to fix it?


P.S. I still got the old version, if anybody (Dariusz?) wants it.
