I tried with -lddmpeg, -libddmpeg and -libddmpeg.so but it still won't

If I use --disable-mythlib it bails out on this :

-I/usr/lib/qt/mkspecs/default -I. -I../mfdlib -I/usr/local/include
-I/usr/lib/qt/include -o dbcheck.o dbcheck.cpp
dbcheck.cpp: In function `void performActualUpdate(const QString*, QString,
dbcheck.cpp:29: error: `VB_ALL' undeclared (first use this function)
dbcheck.cpp:29: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for
