Actually, that is the frustrating thing. After the first suggestion that I
install mythtv first before configuring and making mythplugins, I did so.
The error I posted was after that.

So I did a clean configure/qmake/make/make install of mythtv and I did the
same for myththemes. I then ran configure, qmake and make for mythplugins. I
am still getting the "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmyth-0.20.1" error. A find
for "*lmyth-0.20.1*" turns up nothing.

I have noticed that qmake is nowhere to be found on my system and the qmake
command returns no feedback. I was assuming that perhaps it's simply a
function of the qt suite, but perhaps therein lies the problem. Searches for
how to install qmake have turned up very little in google.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.
