Hello all,

Our electricity was finally restored after 1 week.  Some folks were out
for 2 weeks around here.  I'm caught up after the Christmas holiday now,
and I've spent some time working with the mythtv-frontend port from
Bernhard today.

I noticed some things:

- - Compilation initially failed because I didn't enable OpenGL support in
QT 3.3.  Unfortunately, there's no way to specify "WITH_OPENGL=true" in
the mythtv-frontend BUILD_DEPENDS directive.

  To make sure OpenGL is built into QT 3.3, I created a slave port
(x11-toolkits/qt33-opengl with CONFLICTS set for qt-3.3.* et al.) and
made mythtv-frontend depend on that.  Let me know what you think of that

- - As mentioned previously in this thread, --disable-backend support has
been removed from MythTV's configure script.  In order to avoid
installing backend binaries, I created a patch file for
programs/ to omit them and updated pkg-plist accordingly.

If you have any feedback or suggestions, please let me know.
