   If the v4l-dvb Makefile overwrote files in /usr/include, it would break the
way alot of package managers maintain what files are on your system. It would be
overwriting files which are owned by something else.  I think the best solution
would be to have the user add the location of the experimental dvb headers to
Make.config in VDR. For example:

DVBDIR   = /usr/src/v4l-dvb/linux
