[mythtv] Dropping Debian 9 support from development code

This is a heads up to anyone who is building the MythTV main
development branch from source. I will be committing a change later
today that breaks compilation on Debian 9. Debian 9 is being dropped
this early in the development cycle as MythTV has moved from the c++11
language standard to the c++17 standard, and Debian 9 is missing
several c++17 features. Further, Debian 9 is scheduled for end of life
only two months after the next release of MythTV, so it doesn't make
sense to add workarounds.

Debian 9 will continue to be supported on the MythTV 31 release.

Thanks for your interest in and help developing MythTV.
