Unfortunately, this doesn't work as all too often the user has "Ubuntu
10.1 but I installed the latest media_build tree a few months ago".
Hence they are not necessarily on a particular binary release from a
distro but rather have a mix of a distro's binary release and a
v4l-dvb tree compiled from source.
