The reason for this is the '--disable-ivtv' flag in the CONFIG line i
the Makefile of the port.

I removed that flag, and I added the patch to videoout_ivtv.cpp 
suggested[1] by usleep in the MythTV 0.22 discussion on this very mailing list.
(patch attached)

After that, MythTV 0.21_2 compiles, installs and runs on this machine:
root at kg-quiet# uname -a
FreeBSD kg-quiet.kg4.no 7.2-STABLE FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE #6: Sat May 30 16:13:13 CEST 2009     root at kg-quiet.kg4.no:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/QUIET  amd64

There are still a few problems:
- mythtv and mythfromtend core dumps when closing
But hey - progress at last!
