Doh!  I just figured out what I did wrong.  I accidentally skipped the
database creation step:

  mysql -u root -p < /usr/share/doc/mythtv-docs-0.23/database/mc.sql

As soon as I created the database my screen text is now the appropriate
size.  I am curious how the database not being setup would cause the tiny
text issue I was seeing.  Anyway, problem solved.
