Yes this was the problem.

Nothing was defined in config.h so I  edited it to look like this:

#define HAVE_LIBMPEG3_H 1
#define HAVE_MPEG3
#define HAVE_LIBDV_H
#define HAVE_LIBDV
#define HAVE_LIBGLUT  It would not compile if I picked the last line:
so I left it:
/* Define if the system has mmx support */
/* #undef HAVE_MMX */
/* #define HAVE_MMX  */

Now pix_film works! but I get a do not continue error:

GEM: IOhannes m zmoelnig
GEM: ver: 0.87+cvs
GEM: compiled: Jan 13 2003
pix_film:: quicktime4linux support
pix_film:: libmpeg3 support
error: GEM: Unable to create single buffer window
error: GEM: Error creating const context
error: GEM: A serious error occured creating const Context
error: GEM: Do not continue!
GEM: Start rendering

I can play the examples, but it is slow, and eventually leads to a seg fault.
I have direct rendering on my ati radeon card, perhaps there is something I 
have configured wrong.  I am about to upgrade the system to XFree86 4.2

Let me know if you have any ideas,
