You only need to recompile vdr if a new plugin requires vdr to be
patched which Gentoo also handles by introducing flags when you
initiate the installation. You don't have to recompile the plugins all
the time. In most cases I found my plugins should only be recompiled
when vdr version changed (then all plugins should be recompiled on a
Gentoo machine) or when the plugin's own dependencies has changed.
e.g. vdr-xineliboutput is dependent on xine-lib. If xine-lib updated
then it would make sense to recompile vdr-xineliboutput again. This is
quite manageable on a Gentoo system, I can't speak for other
distributions, I can only imagine the same process would apply.

Unfortunately it was only on the mailing system... I Hope Klaus will
approve it and update his ftp. Works for me :)
