Gentoo is a packaging system around source files.  If you install stuff 
then it tracks it and removes *all* that cruft at a later stage when you 
upgrade or re-install

So when cvs changes version it clears out all those old 0.15 files and 
puts in the 0.16 files... make install doesn't do this.

I have my own gentoo ebuilds for cvs and use them a lot for the modules 
that I don't have my own local development on.  This means that when I 
put in a new main mythtv I can just "emerge" the main modules, and build 
my custom ones and then I'm up and running again.  Very convenient
