When I run 

apt-get build-dep mythtv

it says

E: Build-dependencies for mythtv could not be satisfied.

And before you ask , I do have 'deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/
unstable main' in my source.list.

The problem is that one of the source deps is for xinerama-dev, which
does not exist in sarge. If you use 

apt-cache showsrc mythtv

install the dependancies by hand and just ignore any that don't exist,
you can compile on sarge
