Surprisingly easy.  Gentoo seems to adapt well to MythTV, though you do 
have to fudge things a bit to get your frondend to automatically start.  
(then again, that's the same for just about any distro, I guess)

There are a couple of decent FAQs around that will get you started.  
Google for "mythtv gentoo" (and vice versa - you do seem to get 
different results) and you'll find a couple.
