FFmpeg and DivX Home Theater Profile


I'm looking for any pointers on how to get FFmpeg to produce encodes that adhere to the DivX Home Theater Profile or that come as close to as possible.

So far the closest I've found to an actual suggestion is the following:
ffmpeg -i "input" -vcodec libxvid -bf 1 -b 850k -mbd 2 -g 300 -flags cgop -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128k -ac 2 "output.avi"
However, it is unclear to me whether:
- I need to specify a fourCC with -vtag
- GMC is disabled in libxvid by default
- QPEL is disabled in libxvid by default
- anything else needs to be explicitly disabled

In addition, is there something I'm totally missing?

I'm doing batch encodes on 64 bit Debian. I prefer using FFmpeg over Mencoder due to audio sync problems. However, I'm open to suggestions regarding other Linux CLI tools and/or Mencoder.
