well, mpeg2enc makes mpeg2, and mpeg1video makes mpeg1.   svcd is mpeg2,
vcd is mpeg1.  depends on what you want, but generally speaking, mpeg2

that's what source rpm's are for.

as long as cvs has a spec file, I can build that way.  I can't do much
for the next few days, anyway...  new website launch at work, and that's
my job, so there's a lot to do.
