I usually use the --disable-all switch, and then enable only the
plugins I want to include.  Use a command similar to this:

./configure --disable-all --enable-opengl --enable-mytharchive
--enable-create-dvd --enable-create-archive --enable-mythcontrols
--enable-mythgallery --enable-exif --enable-mythgame
--enable-mythmusic --enable-fftw --enable-sdl --enable-aac
--enable-mythnews --enable-mythvideo --enable-mythweather

Also, make sure that you delete your old plugins before installing the
new ones.  If your old plugins are of a recent version, they will
probably still show up in mythfrontend.  Check your
/usr/{local/}lib/mythtv/plugins directory.

> 2nd, Recently mythweather has stopped working.  Specifically, If I switch to the mythweather screen all I get is the background image.  Most times an escape will exit me out of the window -- other's I will be frozen in that window...   I have attempted to monitor messages produced by saving them to a log file, but I didn't notice anything of help.  If posting that log file would be of help, please let me know.

MythWeather works for the most part.  The most recent update to it has
caused some problems... however, some previous SVN revisions will
work.  Check out http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/3921 and
