here the last bit of the mythtv build output before it stops, any ideas

I am not sure if this helps but I did some quick looking into this issue and
maybe the line needs to be changed to QT4's methods? They have been renamed
according to #4 here:

I have no idea if this will help at all but maybe try changing line 327 to
QString cmd = QString("cmd.exe /c %1").arg(command.toUtf8()).toAscii();

That is the only idea I have and to me it does not seem like it will stop
the error, but it may be worth a shot.
