I have now added some examples to the Wiki animations page:
* 1 Q: How to construct high-quality MPEG-4 movies (animations)
from a series of still frames?
* 2 Q: How to generate an animated GIF, FLI, or MNG?
* 3 Q: How to create dynamic surface movies in NVIZ
* 4 Q: How to animate a time series of raster maps?
* 5 Q: How to animate a series of maps, including decorations?
* 6 Examples
o 6.1 Animate on screen
o 6.2 Animate to files
o 6.3 Encode as animated GIF
o 6.4 Encode as animated PNG (MNG)
o 6.5 Encode as FLI
o 6.6 Encode as MPEG-4 Xvid

Problem -- mencoder doesn't like PPMs created with the GRASS PNG driver:
$ file ganim_001.ppm
ganim_001.ppm: Netpbm PPM "rawbits" image data
$ ls -l ganim_*.ppm | wc -l
$ mencoder "mf://ganim_*.ppm" -mf "type=ppm:fps=5" -o ganim2.avi \
-ovc xvid -xvidencopts bitrate=1024
MEncoder 1.0pre8-3.3.5 (C) 2000-2006 MPlayer Team
success: format: 16 data: 0x0 - 0x0
[mf] search expr: ganim_*.ppm
[mf] number of files: 22 (88)
[demux_mf] unknown input file type.
============ Sorry, this file format is not recognized/supported =============

Cannot open demuxer.
Using PNG files work fine (see wiki example).
