I have had success in building mythtv with prefix=.., and
then installing it with INSTALL_ROOT=/c/mythtv/build/tmp.

This means that the package can be run from the build
directory _and_ relocated. I haven't tested a setup.exe
package lately, though.

The current problem is that the plugins won't build
because they can't find either mythtv includes or libs.
The first is easy (setup_build.sh can move the installed
includes to /include), but the second I an still fighting.
