Note that the CVS versions installs into /usr/local by default, and many 
prepacked/binary packages install into /usr. So you might actually have 
two versions on your system now, which usually causes all kinds of 
problems. If this is the case, make the CVS version install to /usr by 
changing every occurance of "/usr/local" to "/usr" in the complete CVS 
tree. This can be done by running the following, which is from Gentoo's 
install script for MythTV:

for i in `grep -lr "usr/local" /path/to/cvs` ; do
   sed -e "s:usr/local:usr:g" -i "${i}" || die "sed failed"

You might have to do a make distclean before recompiling.
