I thought biniaries were compiled into the Kernel -- not applications.
Binaries are compiled for numerous things what they are telling you is that you need support for the XvMC when compiling mythtv probably with something like ./configure --with=xvmc
as an option when configuring the program before make then make install. On Debian you would need the libxvmc-dev development package installed along with the xorg-dev I would think to have the header files needed when building packages that use them. You will need to figure out what these packages are called in your distro and use ./configure --help
to show yourself exactly what the options are named as to pick the correct one or looking into the INSTALL or README file will usually tell you as well.
