It's true, the documentation isn't very helpful in this case.

The ilvc flag has been replaced by the -intra_vlc option, and
the non_linear_q flag has been replaced by -non_linear_quant.
As for sgop, I'm not sure.  It's deprecated as a flag, but it
might still work.  Additionally you might have to set the scene
change threshold to a very high value:  -sc_threshold 1000000000
