That was going to be my response - then I realised he didn't write quite
what I thought he'd written.
Configure as in setup, not the precompile ./configure :)

I think the answer is - you don't use qt to configure a backend.
You use setup/mythsetup from the commandine, possibly edit some files
(eg mysql, xmltv) and use a frontend to do the rest.

If you don't have a working frontend then I wouldn't worry about the
backend since you ain't seeing much no matter whether it's configured or
not ;)
