I tend to hack the ebuilds to work with the new versions, something
mkdir /usr/local/portage/media-video/mythtv/
cd /usr/local/portage/media-video/mythtv/
sed -e "s/0.14/0.15/" \
/usr/portage/media-video/mythtv/mythtv-0.14.ebuild > mythtv-0.15.ebuild

would probably not work this way, but you get the direction
If you can't get it to work, take the ebuild and work closely with the
commands in the ebuild, that way could get everything in the path
where you would want it on a gentoo system.

you would have to remover mysql for that, and I am not even sure the
db would be deleted in that case
