He was asking you if you had installed mythtv from trunk /before/ 
compiling mythtv-plugins from trunk.  The proper order is to: 1) compile 
mythtv, 2) install mythtv, 3) compile mythtv-plugins, 4) install 
mythtv-plugins, 5) compile mythtv-themes (if desired), 6) install 
mythtv-themes (if desired).

Compiling mythtv-plugins from 0.19-fixes against the mythtv libraries 
from 0.19 would likely "succeed"; whereas compiling mythtv-plugins from 
SVN trunk against the mythtv libraries from 0.19 would definitely fail.  
Note, however, that whether the 0.19-fixes plugins compiled against 0.19 
libraries actually work properly after the compile succeeds is a whole 
other question.
