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.
