The version of plugins you are attempting to compile does not match
the Myth libraries installed on your system.  MythTV and the plugins
must be identical revisions, and you must do a make install on mythtv
before attempting a plugin compile.  The file hashing code referenced
above exists in core MythTV, which is in turn called by MythVideo.
