Sigh...  as it turns out, the svn myththemes 'extraction' puts the 
themes in /share/mythtv/themes, whereas the mythtv svn put them in 
/usr/share/mythtv/themes...  Once I rebuilt both and ran make install, 
and watched where they were going, I figured it out.  Now why the 
myththemes svn goes into an 'odd' place...  I don't know..  Thanks!
