IIRC from when I initially installed my backend (0.17,) libiec61883 was
the stumbling block. The compilation failed when I had ieee1394 in my
use flags. I took it out of my default use flags, since I didn't really
need it there.
Subsequently that flag was removed from the ebuild. I see that it's
back in the 0.18 ebuild though, so maybe there's an ebuild for
libiec61883 and I just don't see it.
As always, ymmv :)
