I don't believe anyone has tried enabling additional codec support in
OPAL, but you can rebuild the Ekiga package from JDS by following
http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Project+jds/building and

libx264 is in spec-files-extra (under encumbered) and you can import
the Ekiga spec files into a local checkout of SFE to build them
