the qt tree takes over 600M
as for what we are interested in:

that depends

if you only want to run a mythtv binary then you are correct
however, if you want enough to be able to (re)compile myth then a lot 
more is required

the latter was what i was trying to work out. what do we need in /qt in 
order to be able to compile and (then also) run mythtv
