Thanks for the reply.

Yes it is failing because of the dep on the myth libs, and it's what
am trying to get around as am trying to have the pkgbuild script build
both myth and plugins in one but my worry is if I don't install myth I
will have plugins built against old libs and then fail to run.

Think this is what am trying to get to, but am not sure I can install
myth before carrying on with the plugins build? or do I set a make
dependency on myth in the script to install myth and then compile

After build and install on FE/BE machine the other FE will see the new
files and install, i'll write a script for that bit, it's this
pkgbuild am trying to get my head round!
