I was having the exact same issue.

I was running RPM packages in FC4 until I upgraded Mythtv using source and
a configure line of:

./configure --enable-xvmc --enable-opengl-vsync

The file exists:

[root at tvserver mythtv-0.20.2]# locate libmythtv-0.20.2.so.0
/usr/local/lib/libmythtv-0.20.2.so.0.20.2
/usr/local/lib/libmythtv-0.20.2.so.0
/usr/local/lib/libmythtv-0.20.2.so.0.20

BUT, I found a solution.  On my system, it's not finding libs in the
default location of /usr/local/lib.

I added /usr/local/lib to /etc/ld.so.conf and ran ldconfig, then it
worked.  Hopefully everything else goes smooth.
