No, I'm seeing this too. I think it's a bug in GCC. I was able to get
MythTV installed by running ebuild rather than emerge so that when it
failed compilation could be resumed without having to start from the
beginning. First find the ebuild file:

# equery which mythtv

It should give you something like:

# ebuild /usr/portage/media-tv/mythtv/mythtv-0.18.1-r1.ebuild fetch
# ebuild /usr/portage/media-tv/mythtv/mythtv-0.18.1-r1.ebuild unpack
# ebuild /usr/portage/media-tv/mythtv/mythtv-0.18.1-r1.ebuild compile

Repeat the above compile step as necessary until compilation completes

# ebuild /usr/portage/media-tv/mythtv/mythtv-0.18.1-r1.ebuild install
# ebuild /usr/portage/media-tv/mythtv/mythtv-0.18.1-r1.ebuild qmerge
# ebuild /usr/portage/media-tv/mythtv/mythtv-0.18.1-r1.ebuild clean

More information on this process is available here:

Btw, you should have stated up front that you are using Gentoo.
