hw.model looks interesting, I had looked through sysctl for something to
use but was looking for cpu or processor :-)

The CPU detection only gets used if the mythtv configure isn't given the 
relevent arguments. It should be possible to get the port's makefile
to add these if required.

I was going to ry and get an vidia XVMC option working next. May switch to
hw.model then although, ideally we shoul have a way to find "features" like
(The Myth TV configure seems to both try to detect them, and in other cases
assume fetures based on Model Name.)
