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 :)
