"svn st http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythplugins" does not check out 
the code, it checks the status.

You need 'svn co  http:........mythtv' and the same for mythplugins and 

Then cd mythtv, run configure, then make, then make install. Do all that 
before attempting to make plugins or themes.

The previously required step 'qmake mythtv.pro' has been added as the 
last line of configure.

Complete scripts to do this are given at the bottom of the wiki page 
Installing Mythtv SVN on Fedora Core (in Howto). The scripts will work 
on basically any distribution. Other sections, such as auto-starting 
mythbackend are fedora specific.
