Preliminary look shows this:
  ./configure

  Warning, some of the pygame dependencies were not found. Pygame can 
  still
  compile and install, but games that depend on those missing 
  dependencies
  will not run. Would you like to continue the configuration? [Y/n]:

A quick scan of documentation and grep of the source implies that the
mpeg support can be built and installed separately from the rest of
pygame.  Testing and a more in-depth look at the source would be
necessary to see if this is true.
