Taglib configure change breaks some nonstandard setups

One of the commits between f434ac6e3b09c9bbb33c90b41675f79bfca339bf and aa7b3974281932a3d8ab19f896a2b76473272932 (adding taglib to the main mythtv build) causes build problems in some setups, due to the output of "taglib-config --libs" being inserted into the linker command lines.

In my case, I have a Ubuntu 10.04 system with Qt 4.6 installed, and I have built and installed Qt 4.8 in a nonstandard location, and put that location near the front of $PATH and $LD_LIBRARY_PATH to make things work out. With the taglib change, -L/usr/lib is added to the linker command line before the path to Qt 4.8, causing the linker to try to link in the Qt 4.6 libraries.

I have a small patch that simply strips -L/usr/lib from the taglib-config output, but perhaps there is a better way.

If you change the check to

if test $taglib_minor -lt 6 || ! check_class_headers_cpp taglib/fileref.h TagLib::FileRef $tagincludes $taglibs -lstdc++; then

does that work?

It looks like check_class_headers_cpp should do the same checks as check_lib_cpp but wont add the flags to extralibs.

Thanks - yes, that change results in successful linking on my system.
