No, the problem seems to be with the --prefix param to the configure  
script.  I haven't been able to pin this down properly (because every  
change I make is followed by a three hour compile), but apparently,  
the prefix is used both to look for compile time dependancies and is  
compiled into the MythTV source.  In the first case, it needs to be  
set to the absolute path of the build directory, and in the second  
case, it needs to be '../Resources'.  Because I never used the  
original script before it broke, I only have a fuzzy idea about what  
is supposed to be going on, but I'll keep working on this.
