well it compiles on FreeBSD 5.4-stable / amd64:
tingo at kg-quiet$ uname -a
FreeBSD kg-quiet.kg4.no 5.4-STABLE FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE #5: Fri Sep  2
15:14:54 CEST 2005     root at kg-quiet.kg4.no:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/QUIET 

with the following options:

root at kg-quiet# make showconfig
===> The following configuration options are set for xdtv-2.2.0:
     MMX=off "Enable MMX features"
     OPTIMIZED=off "You're risk: guess CPU and gcc optimization"
     Xaw3D=on "use Xaw3D"
     neXtaw=on "use neXtaw"
     Mowitz=on "use Mowitz"
     X11EXT=on "use X11 extentions (DGA,VidMode,DPMS)"
     Xvideo=on "use the Xvideo extention"
     LIRC=on "Use lirc remote control"
     FFMPEG=on "FFMPEG for capturing"
     FFMPEG_DEVEL=off "FFMPEG dev version for capturing"
     XVID=on "enable XviD divx codec"
     LAME=on "enable lame audio compression"

     NLS=off "natural language support"
     DEBUG=off "debug symbols in binary"
     NXTVEPG=off "support for tv prgram schedules"

(I had to turn NXTVEPG off, as it isn't supported on amd64).
I don't (yet) have a bktr TV-card in this machine, so I can't test it

When started, it display the following:

and then quits. For all I know, this can be perfectly normal when there
is no TV card in the machine

Oh, and xdtv_wizard looks for it's config file in the wrong place:
