Attached is an updated patch.  It adds support for 15 bpp output, as 
well as RLE compression.  It always tries RLE for a frame, and falls 
back to uncompressed if RLE didn't help or made the size bigger.

I don't know why quicktime doesn't play the output in the mov container, 
but if you do

ffmpeg -i file -vcodec targa test.avi

to encode into avi, quicktime plays it fine in my tests.
