=from kbtv README
If you set the
WITH_SAA variable to True the saa.ko kernel module will be built and
installed, as well as the tvv X-based viewer (gets embedded into kbtv) and
a saa Python module that allows for tuning and such, exactly like the bt848
module provides for Brooktree based hardware. Note that some parts, not
needed for kbtv, are not built and not installed by kbtv.

ls kbtv-1.0/saa/patches
ls kbtv-1.0/saa/saa

bsd patches from /usr/ports/multimedia/kbtv/work/*/saa/patches
