My confusion; I thought a K6-2 was an i686, but it's an i586 with mmx.  So,
you need to rebuild mythtv with -march=i585 instead of -march=i686.  Add
this line to sources.list:

deb-src http://dijkstra.csh.rit.edu:8088/~mdz/debian woody mythtv

apt-get update
apt-get source mythtv
cd mythtv-0.7
edit settings.pro and change the flags at the bottom
dpkg-buildpackage -b

And then install the resulting .deb files with dpkg --install.
