I started my contribution to the development of the LIVE plugin without 
installed vdr sources.

I installed the "vdr-dev" package from e-tobi debian repository and used 
the following script to build the binary of the plugin.

'libvdr-live.so.1.6.0' is created in the .libs subdirectory then. Of course 
the binary had to be copied into the right installation path afterwards.

# check if this are live sources 
# (there is an extra live subdir in the sources)
[ -d live ] || exit 0

mkdir -p .libs
VDRDIR=/usr/include/vdr LIBDIR=.libs make $*

Kind regards
