If you have an installed version of VDR on your system (i.e. there is
a vdr.pc file in /usr/share/pkgconfig) and you 'make' a plugin from
within the plugin's source directory, the information stored in that
vdr.pc file will be used.
If, in such a scenario, you want to build the plugin using VDR header
files from the VDR source directory, you need to do

   make VDRDIR=/path/to/your/vdr/source

If you want to be able to build a plugin from within its source directory,
and use the VDR source from ../../.. without setting the VDRDIR macro, you
need to make sure that there is no vdr.pc in /usr/share/pkgconfig.
