There is also an explicit 0.27.6 version at the mythtv github repo:
however it produced the same result (builds only if --enable-libvpx is 
removed) even though its just 6 days old.

There is much better news about building from master which I cloned and 
made a tarball available at:
(that is not really my place to put tarballs, so I'll will remove if 
anyone thinks its inappropriate).

After the minor mods to the SlackBuild needed for the new tarball, 
building from this git tarball just works using the existing configure 
options but with the added hard requirement of qt5.

Some minor things I noticed were:
- reference to libvdpau in the README can be removed (its now in stock 14.2)
- the --enable-sdl option can be added; it works with sdl in stock 14.2
- SBO's libcec could be added to the README as optional (or the 
REQUIRES); it is detected without any changes
- SBo's avahi could be added to the README as optional (or the 
REQUIRES); it is detected without any changes
