MythLCD is ONLY a test program.  If you want to enable lcd support, you 
need to configure mythtv with --enable-lcd

The LCD support is useful mainly in mythmusic.  In that module, it 
displays the current song, and the status of the song.  If your LCD has 
a keypad, you can navigate the menus, select songs, play songs, etc.
