Yes, the ebuild is probably trying to add more aggressive compile flags.
This will have to be reworked for the new ./configure script. I can't
test how custom CFLAGS will interact with every source file. But,
perhaps I can add a warning about custom flags to the script.

in /var/tmp does not exist. Not something we can fix. You might
want to re-emerge distcc. ccache should "just work" with MythTV
now, just emerge ccache, ./configure and go.
