Having created this guide over a year and a half ago, I would be remiss if I did not point out that recently I had pointed out to me how to stabilize videos using strictly linux applications. There is a blog explaining how to do this with transcode and mplayer: Deshaking videos with Linux

ie First Pass:
and Second Pass:
transcode -J stabilize --mplayer_probe -i yourmovie.avi
I note that I can mostly obtain a better quality stabilization with Virtualdub and wine, but I am still learning how to use the transcode method, and so things could change.
transcode -J transform --mplayer_probe -i yourmovie.avi -y raw -o yourstabilizedmovie.avi
