Many libraries are needed for particular uses
libdvbpsi (always needed)
libdvdcss if you want to be able to access encrypted DVDs ,
libdvdread if you want to be able to stream DVDs ,
libdvb if you want to be able to stream from a DVB card (a satellite card or a digital terrestial TV card) .

if you want a VLS with DVB support, do :
% ./configure --enable-dvb --with-dvb=PATH_TO_DVB_DRIVERS --with-libdvb=PATH_TO_LIBDVB
Then, compile and install :
% make # make install
