I have the strangest luck...

./configure (a bunch of options - but NOT overriding the --prefix)
sudo make install

...and each and every time I try this, libmythtv-0.19.so isn't copied 
over to /usr/local/lib..  So I do

cd /usr/src/mythtv/libs/libmythtv
make -n install
// that looks good...
make install
// lots of errors.. forgot sudo..
sudo make install
// and now it gets REALLY odd.  Here's the output:

gdezern at server /usr/src/mythtv/libs/libmythtv $ sudo make install
// pw prompt edit
( cd /src/moc && make )
/bin/sh: line 0: cd: /src/moc: No such file or directory
make: *** [/bin/moc] Error 1

That's weird.  How about using su without sudo?
THAT works.  Should this be reported as a bug?
