Only dealing with this one because it's the only one related to
MythTV.  You steamrolled over your existing install.  You can't do
this.  You need to remove all myth libs and then make install the new
version.  Specifically, you need to do:

rm -rf /usr/local/lib/mythtv/*
rm /usr/local/libmyth*

then go back to your new source, and do a make install.  Things ought
to load properly thereafter.

The other stuff is all non-myth setup stuff AFAICT, I'm sure people
will offer bits and pieces of advice, but I'm leaving those be.
