I didn't realise there was a debianize-vdrplugin command. What I did was
set up a skeleton /usr/src/vdr/ with /usr/src/vdr/config.h symlinked to
/usr/include/vdr/config.h and /usr/src/vdr/PLUGINS/lib symlinked to
/usr/lib/vdr/plugins/. If you unpack the plugins as normal in
/usr/src/vdr/PLUGINS/src and build them with `make all', most of them
seem to work OK then. I had to alter softdevice's Makefile though to use
fixed paths for libdir, otherwise it seemed to rely on the CWD at
runtime. I haven't used the dxr3 plugin for a long time, but I did use
it successfully this way in the past.
