Thanks Bill

SVN version only will be installed. I found that the package version 
sticks it executables in /usr so I am going with default of /usr/local 
just to be different. At the moment I am going to the "make" step until 
today's recordings are finished and I have more time later to do the 
transfer. That is if I can get MythMusic compiled.
