[mythtv-users] Configure backend w/o GUI

Got it fixed, problem is QT runs from the X client side so it doesn't
matter where you export the display to.  What I eventually ended up
doing was recompiling qt with the -no-xft switch to disable the
FreeType2 font atialiasing support.  This solved my fonts not being
rendered in qt apps.  Frontend runs on a different box so I think I
got my 5 minutes out of my 4 days of mucking with QT  :P
