I modified the -cvs ebuilds to use subversion instead. Nuvexport-svn already
existed and I provided that as well.
I have not tested the builds for frontend, game, gallery, news, phone, and
web however since the others are working and the changes were made in the
eclass I would believe they all work.

All the the official ebuilds and the -cvs ebuilds will block these from
running so you will need to remove them first.

Mythplugins is checked out once and all plugins are built from this.

There is a bug with the subversion ebuilds thou unrelated to these
creations. It effects all ebuilds that retrieve from a subversion
It seems that they do not run an update from resource each time even if
updates are available. I opened a bug for this at gentoo.
Workaround is to either delete your local tree before running the ebuild or
to goto the location of the local build and run svn update prior to running
the ebuild.
To not cause unnecessary load on the servers until this is fixed I would
goto /usr/portage/distfiles/svn-src and run the following 3 lines prior to
the ebuilds
svn update mythtv/mythtv
svn update mythplugins/mythplugins
svn update nuvexport/trunk
