because i can go emerge mythtv-cvs and it does all the hard work for me
i suppose i could do it all in a shell script, but then *i* would ask why.
an ebuild encapsulates all the build information in one place so i don't have
to recreate it every time. seems pretty logical to me. in fact, i only have
one piece of software on all my gentoo boxes (and i have quite a few) which
is not installed via an ebuild

are you saying that my ebuilds don't work together. can you tell me what is
wrong and i'll fix them up?

what i meant was ebuilds not distributed my the gentoo project. ie. mine being
but a small example

i am using them. on several machines. what i am not doing is building mythtv
with one ebuild and (say) mythmusic with another. my ebuilds come as a set.
use them all or use none.

well there are large parts of myth that i have never ever looked at. the
ebuilds that i have provided are to help me to build myth. if they are of use
to anyone, then fine. if not, well that is also fine.
as for the conf.php file. i assume you mean things like:
define('server_domain', $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] ? $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] :
a quick search with google will tell you what that means. in any case, i've
never found the need to change that file myself.
best of luck with your myth system
