Transcode: problem converting avi (DivX) to mpg

I thought I was trying to do something simple but I keep running into
problems.  This is the file I'm trying to convert to an mpeg format
for either a vcd or svcd:

	-bash-2.05b$ avinfo foo.avi 
	~10Mb, 00:01:33
	video: 640x386, 23.98 fps,  (DIVX), 807kbps
	audio: 44100, Mono, ISO/MPEG Layer3, 92kbps
	Software: MEncoder 0.90rc5-2.95.4 
	Codec information:
	Signature:  (DIVX)
	Name: DivX

I think I almost have it with transcode:

-bash-2.05b$ transcode -i foo.avi -x divx,mp3 -V -y mpeg -F 1,1 -E 44100 -b 224 -o bar.mpg

I installed ports/multimedia/libdivxdecore as well as ports/multimedia/linux-divx4linux4 but to no avail as it still cannot
find .  I've also rebuilt transcode after installing 

Anyone have any suggestions on solving this ... or even a different
method of converting an avi to an mpeg usable for (s)vcd ?
