Ok, initial testing of the 'mythtv' port.
The first time I did 'portinstall -R mythtv' it failed because the
newly installed mysql-server couldn't be started (because it is missing
a mysql_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf). Not sure how this should be
Output from portinstall command:

I just started mysql-server manually, cd'ed to the port directory and did a 'make install' afterwards.

Ok, more testing to follow.
