I have managed to compile it on 32-bit Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.
By no means are the instructions comprehensive , they are what worked for me.

1. Follow this tutorial and install ffmpeg : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095

2. Download the latest xine-lib tarballs from the site : http://www.xine-project.org/releases

3. Extract and rename the folder xine-lib.

4. Execute the command :
sudo apt-get build-dep xine-lib.

5. Now to compile:

cd xine-lib


./configure --with-external-ffmpeg


sudo checkinstall --pkgname=xine-lib --pkgversion "1.1.x.x" --backup=no --default
Subsitute the right numbers in the --pkgversion option above
