I know little about MythTV, but how long ago was your last revdep-rebuild?
If you've not run it in awhile, chances are you upgraded something, maybe
X, maybe something else, to a binary incompatible version, without
rebuilding everything that depended on it. Normally, that means something
breaks, but in this case, it may simply mean MythTV is falling back to a
very slow unaccelerated compatibility mode.
Note that if you've not run revdep-rebuild in some time, it's likely
you'll have a whole list of stuff that needs rebuilt, and doing so will
take awhile. It uses the same -p for pretend that emerge does, so use -p
the first time. It'll do its thing scanning all your binaries and
libraries to figure out what needs rebuilt, which takes awhile, then spit
out a list. If you like the list, run it again without the -p and let it
get to work (it won't have to recalculate everything, as it will still
have the work files around from the first run). Or, you can emerge
--oneshot each package on the list, manually. That's what I usually do.
If you don't have the revdep-rebuild command, it's part of gentoolkit,
which also contains a bunch of other very useful tools.
