bug 87947 references a problem between MythTV 0.17 and QT 3.3.4. This same problem afflicts MythTV 0.16.
Can the ebuilds for 0.16 be adjusted to say "I don't work with QT >=3.3.4" ? When I first encountered this problem I masked qt-3.3.4-r2, but then a recent update installed qt-3.3.4-r3.
Using PORTDIR_OVERLAY I have determined that altering mythtv-0.16.ebuild to say
! X? ( >=x11-libs/qt-3.1 <x11-libs/qt-3.3.4 )
directfb? ( dev-libs/DirectFB >=x11-libs/qt-embedded-3.1 )
is sufficient to express mythtv's requirements.
Please add your comment to the other bug, we don't need two bugs for a single problem and this is not a critical issue anyways.
