To my knowledge, there is no port in the ports collection that allows you to 
encode with the DivX codec (as provided by divx.com). The reason for this is 
mostly that the DivX codec is only available as Linux binary (stay AWAY from 
multimedia/libdivxdecore* and multimedia/libdivxencore - they are incredibly 
outdated and shouldn't be used for anything by anyone).

However, multimedia/transcode (and the transcode-frontend multimedia/dvdrip), 
mencoder (multimedia/mplayer) and possibly others can use XviD 
(multimedia/xvid, a free mpeg4 codec that's wide-spread in the Windows world 
as well) or ffmpeg's (multimedia/ffmpeg) 'mpeg4' codec, which produces output 
that is usually playable with DivX capable players or the DivX codec for
