All you need is: fglrx >= 11.11 installed, no more xvba-driver or other wrapper.
I have Catalyst 11.11 installed (8.911), and trying to install xbmc, I get
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
xbmc : Depends: fglrx (>= 2:8.911) but 2:8.881-0ubuntu4.1 is to be installed
I didn't build the packages, just ran the AMD installer, so fglrx shows up as not installed in Synaptic. For some odd reason, I always have problems with Eyefinity when I do the buildpkg route. BTW, on a Radeon HD 6950 with Ubuntu 11.10 x64.
We packaged it to check that there is a ubuntu package of fglrx installed in order to avoid that people have it running on a broken environment.
You could install the package or alternatively do something with -f and --ignore-missing (not recommended)
Just tried it with Ubuntu 11.10 + Catalyst 11.11 + AMD 780G (Radeon HD 3200) integrated GPU + XBMC from this ppa. Works great so far! I never got it to work with vaapi, but this just works. One minor annoyance is with seeking there is a bit of jumping forward and backward. But this is just a minor thing.

8GB Kingstone (i guess generic RAM)
4x 2TB WD Red (using ZFS RaidZ2) < Not covered on the XBMC Guide
1x 64 Vertex 4 (split in 10 GB boot, the rest is ZFS Cache)
Chembro ES34069 (to fit it all in)
Azio Thumb Keyboard
With Lubuntu -pulseaudio as base (I took Pulseaudio away so that I can use pSX Emulator on a 64 bit environment)
