backend cannot generate thumbnails if configured with --disable-frontend

I have a strictly backend machine that I configured and compiled with the --disable-frontend option. It would not generate preview thumbnails because tv_rec.cpp ifdefed out the GetScreenGrab? call with #ifdef USING_FRONTEND. I recompiled the backend without the --disable-frontend option and all works fine.

I think the backend should be able to generate thumbnails without compiling the frontend code.

The --disable-frontend option is in the Advanced configuration options because it is only intended for aiding those porting to other platforms.

The frontend is required for generating previews.
