Yeaaa, I would expect it too :(

The machine is really stable and serve 5 users with KDE, mail, X Window
server, LTSP server, print server.

Note that final.mpeg is ordinary movie mpeg file - 644,5 MB size.

I thing it is working streamless.
zeus:~/main # hdparm -Tt /dev/hda
Timing cached reads: 1748 MB in 2.00 seconds = 873.95 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 166 MB in 3.02 seconds = 54.96 MB/sec
zeus:~/main # hdparm -Tt /dev/sda
Timing cached reads: 1820 MB in 2.00 seconds = 909.94 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 174 MB in 3.02 seconds = 57.54 MB/sec

gcc version 4.0.2 20050901 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)
I compiled xvidcore-1.1.0.tar.bz myself now.
Still SLOW, SLOW...

I tried this one, without frameno:
mencoder -noaspect -oac mp3lame -lameopts vbr=3:br=96 -ovc xvid -xvidencopts
../$file -o $file-final.avi
butt SLOW SLOW... 7 frames / second
