Something that looks odd in the compiler output is the -DPREFIX=\"\" and 
all the include paths are wrong also which suggests the install prefix 
is wrong. I believe the mythplugins compile reads these setting from the 
mythconfig.mak that is installed when mythtv is installed which is why I 
thought maybe you hadn't installed mythtv before trying to compile the 

I'd try re-running the mythplugins configure script and add a 
--prefix=??? parameter  to make sure the script can find the 
mythconfig.mak. If it still fails check in the mythplugins source 
directory for the 'mythconfig.mak' symlink to make sure it  points to 
the installed mythconfig.mak.
