Log from failed build will be v.helpfull.
Despite I'm wildly guessing - Your issue might be related to fact that 
PKGBUILD script tries to build sequentially 2 separate packages: base 
mythtv & mythtv plugins.
As plugins can be successfully build only if build environment has 
installed ABI compatible mythtv libs - before plugins building You have 
to first install mythtv base libs.
Practically this means before plugins build You have to install first - 
just build - first mythtv package.
Simply install it and try again build plugins.

P.S this issue forced me to write my own PKGBUILD scripts....
