Disclaimer: I have not used debian in years and dpkg options are not
coming to mind right now.

I tried using the apt source list to install MTV, but the packages got me into a dependancy loop that I could not seem to resolve.  The meta packages required packages that required other packages which required the afformentioned packages.  I decided to install from the source, after this problem.  If I am not mistaken, I have all of MythTV's dependancies installed.  I succesfuly configure the install, and got to the 'make' step.  The following is the error I got:
Fair Enough.

First off - There is a dpkg equivalent to rpm's --nodeps where dpkg
ignores the dependency info so you can force one through a loop when
that happens. RTFM "man dpkg" 
(rare but it happens occasionaly)

This basically says "NuppelVideoRecorder.h was called and wants to read
in $INCLUDEPATH/lame/lame.h but here is no such file or directory by
that name"

The compile of NuppelVideoRecorder.cpp failed w/ an error, and so the
rest of the compile cannot continue.

Same as the first but it was called again.

Again, the same as above, but this is the second call of the .h that
referenced lame.h which does not exist in the path it is looking.

The path these files are generally referenced in is /usr/include, so in
this case, lame.h should be in /usr/include/lame/lame.h

This is verbose output of which errors occured during the make. 
#1 at line 24 and #2 at line 35.


Let me know how you fair, source compiles do not fill "dpkg"
dependencies but do provide the required functionality for the package -
dpkg can also install source but the dpkg package/source installs, and
tarball source installs are independent of each other, source compiles
have no "dependancy" per se aside from some packages requiring others to
compile - but no "managed" dependancy tree such as exists in the
dpkg/apt system which is where your loop is occuring. dpkg has an option
to ignore dependancies and "force" an install. (--force maybe? See
"First off" at the top.)
