 MythTV includes copies of some libs because it depends on _specific_
 versions of those libs. Linking other libs is just liable to create bugs
 as has repeatedly happened with debian packages - to the extent that a lot
 of application developers are pissed off with Debian packagers thinking
 they know better than the people who actually wrote the application. In
 some cases inept packagers have created real security problems instead of
 fixing theoretical ones.

 If Debian packagers want to alter the code they supply to their users,
 then they can stop calling it MythTV because it's NOT.
