I use the shell script avi2mpg which contains:

################ begin #########################
usage="usage: avi2mpg <avi_path>"

if [ $# = 0 ]
then
  /bin/echo 1>&2 "$usage"
   exit 1
fi

base=`echo "$1" | sed -e 's/\.avi$//' -e 's/\.AVI$//'`

mencoder -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -o  "$base.mpg"  "$1"
############## end ############################### 

It uses the command mencoder which is part of the
mplayer-mencoder package from livna
mplayer-mencoder-1.0-0.lvn.0.33.pre7try2.4
