Thank you Peter for the response.  I was aware of the resync, and it 
seemed likely that it had caused the failure, which I think was in the 
packaging; those ffmpeg example files got into what I believe was a 
successful main build but triggered a failure when the packaging process 
ignored them.  I haven't yet got a solution, but my question really was 
"Ought they to be considered as an integral part of the Mythtv 
distribution?"   Since they are already in the git tarballs I guess the 
answer is Yes; so I'll try working on that basis.
