I can see quite a large problem, unfortunately (And being a former
Amiga owner and fanatic, it's a little dissapointing).

I don't believe QT is available for AmigaOS, which means that
compiling Myth is going to be virtually impossible.

However, the latest Amiga boards (Like the Pegasos) can run PPC Linux,
and as Myth will compile under OSX (Which is NetBSD on PPC), it may be
possible to compile Myth. But that would be running on Linux/PPC, not
AmigaOS or MorphOS.
