Please fix the wording of this if you really mean "On frontends that 
/are not running/ a backend".  Or, if talking about a platform other 
than Linux, please say so.

If, in fact, mythbackend is not installed on a Linux machine, you are 
running an unsupported case...

The configure script will output:

WARNING: --disable-backend is only intended to aid porting.
WARNING: You are on your own now.

if you use "--disable-backend".
