you are dead rignt. 

 The whole mythtv source configure setup seems a bit of dogsbreakfast.   Then 
again I supposed it is  tailored for ubuntification/fedorafication.

--------they have a configure script    which is not autoconf-based and most 
of the settings  seem to be ignored,  
--------there is no output when it is run

and I am still unclear if  one can or cannot use external libs such as ffmpeg. 
dvdnav, dvdread or otherwise..  

thanks for  the  advice  by the way.
