I can't get that to compile as it looks like it's using qt3 (I'm using  
QT4 and am hesitant to install QT3 out of fear it will break my qt4  
stuff since I don't know a whole lot about qt) and I couldn't find a  
way to change the install prefix from /usr/local to /usr (as my setup  
requires). Just a heads-up for anyone seeing this message and wants to  
install MythTube.
