Yes - my mistake.  Am running revision 20195

Found 2 copies of the headers:

Have written over the "/usr/include/ffmpeg/libavcodec/avcodec.h" with the 
new headers and it now complies.

1) I gather I still need a xine front end for xine-0.9.1?  I've compiled and 
installed "xine-ui-cvs-20090412200000"

2) I've compiled xine-0.9.1 plugin and started vdr.  But when I start xine 
xine --verbose=2 -V vdpau -L --post vdr_video --post vdr_audio --post 
upmix_mono vdr:/tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes
I get:
xine: error while loading shared libraries: libxine.so.2: cannot open shared 
object file: No such file or directory
# locate libxine.so.2

What's wrong now?  Is the wrong front end to use?
