Sorry about the noise,  but I'm kind of new to trying to develop on 
mythtv.  After looking through the configure script it looks like I only 
needed to have set $prefix before running the configure, compiling and 
installing.     Now everything is working ok. Setting INSTALL_ROOT 
seemed to be my mistake.

What confuses me,  it seems like $prefix actually compiled into the 
executables ( for example the location of "filters" directory ).      Is 
this the case, or am I missing something here?
