I love debian :)  But I run ubuntu on my laptop ;)
You can do this:
apt-get build-dep mythtv

And it will install all needed -dev packages for you you need .......

After that you can do
apt-get -b source mythtv

and it will build mythtv automagically for you.

(you need some deb-src in /etc/apt/sources for mythtv of course, mine is for 
deb-src http://be.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu breezy multiverse)
