I must be doing something wrong but I can’t see what. The issue occurs with freetype as well. A few days ago I got further and posted to the user list, where I was told

It's a bug. Installing Xrandr will work-around it.

jam at gold:~/mythtv-29/mythtv$ ./configure
ERROR: libxml-2.0 not found using pkg-config

If you think configure made a mistake, make sure that you are using the latest
version of MythTV from git.  If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
mythtv-dev at mythtv.org mailing list or IRC #mythtv on irc.freenode.net
Include the log file "config.ep" produced by configure as this will help
solve the problem.
