[mythtv-users] Help? /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lvdpau compiling trunk

I am trying to compile trunk and am stuck. I am getting the following 
error when compiling libmythui with vdpau support.  I have JYA's nvidia 
190.36 drivers installed including the -dev package. I am running ubuntu 
8.04.  I did have to make a manual symlink to one of the libs to get 
past a previous compile error but cannot remember atm what lib it was. 
Perhaps this is the same sort of issue but this one does not offer any 
clues as to whats actually wrong. Any thoughts or suggestions on what I 
missed installing?
