At the risk of sounding like a pompous, arrogant
<insert word of choice here>, I'd say that chances
are, if you don't know what an option does, you
probably don't need to include it in your build.  Even
though I'm a diehard geek, to me, less is more.  (And
not in the pager sense.)

I don't know about perl bindings, but for XvMC OpenGL
to work, you need to have the right combination of
libraries on your system.  I haven't figured it out
yet, and as far as I can tell, XvMC OpenGL doesn't
give me any benefits (next sentence).

I don't know if this is the current situation still or
not, (or if it applies, since the wording is somewhat
vague) but a posting by Daniel K. (the code maintainer
for XvMC) indicates that you might not want to enable
XvMC OpenGL:
