If you do this, you will obviously have built VDR with LCLBLD=1
(and a copy of Make.config.template), in which case /opt/vdr-$APIVERSION/include
will be in the vdr.pc file as part of the CXXFLAGS.
Since you will need to build your plugins with

make VDRDIR=/opt/vdr-$APIVERSION

this will read /opt/vdr-$APIVERSION/vdr.pc and everything should work just fine.

This has also been suggested here:


so if there are two more people who ACK this, I'll add it for the next version.
