I contacted the moblin dev list and this is what one guy said:

"Looks like INT32 isn't defined, which is defined by Xmd.h.
Perhaps the codebase isn't ported to a modern Xorg implementation?"

Sorry, I don't know much about Xorg development or what is entailed in
getting myth to work with a "modern Xorg implementation".  Do you think this
is something that has been fixed in the latest trunk?  I'm going to try to
compile that tonight and see if I can make any further progress on it.
