[mythtv] EPEL 7 source package set

Out of curiosity I went to the trouble to figure out what packages are
missing for EPEL 7 and was finally able to build MythTV binary packages.
I'm not interested in getting into the repo business but if someone else is
interested ti playing with them I can tar up the the whole thing and make
them available online.
It requires an EPEL 7 OS (RHEL, CentOS, SL, etc, with Fedora EPEL
repository enabled) or a current Fedora release and mock.
I would to build with mock even if you are running an EPEL distro because
it provides mockchain to chain build the packages unless you really want
to try to document the build order.
It doesn't do anything intelligent, but if a package fails to build and
later another one succeeds, it will try again.
The other advantages of mock is it builds all the packages in a chroot so
you don't have to actually install all the development packages system wide.
It will take a long time the first time to download and cache all the
packages and chroot but subsequent rebuilds should be faster.
