I am also running an EPIA SP1300 and have a very different config. 
Specifically, configure detects the xvmcpro libraries. This may well have 
nothing to do with any problem you are having, of course...

./configure \
        --prefix=/usr/local/mythtv.SVN \
        --compile-type=release \
        --enable-proc-opt \
        --enable-dvb --dvb-path=/usr/include \
        --disable-ivtv --disable-dbox2 --disable-hdhomerun \
        --enable-xvmc --enable-xvmc-pro \
        --enable-xrandr --enable-x11 \
