[mythtv] compliling on ubuntu/kubuntu edgy 6.1

apparently this problem is happening all over the place, not just myth.

I did a search for  the error on google, and came up with a couple of
troubleshooting prospects.
there may be a bug in the myth sources causing the crash,
since one of the links mentioned that the software should look for where
freetype2 is installed,

I'm going to symlink as the first link suggests when I get home,
and try again.
