Thank you again for confirming it works on both -current and 14.2. I 
have found the problem at my end. Years ago I had to create a soft link 
for the videodev.h file (to cope with an old Motion bug!) - and that was 
preventing Motion from compiling now:

/usr/include/linux/videodev.h -> /usr/include/linux/videodev2.h

Once I removed the soft link, everything compiled fine. Sorry for the 
noise and thank you for the help.
