yea, but I want to get back to using emerge. The real issue is that 
mythfrontend wouldn't start I suspect cuz it was looking for themes in 
/usr/local. I spent about an hour manually deleting myth stuff from 
/usr/local and now it finally works. Apparently myth looks in /usr/local 
first by default. I couldn't find it configured anywhere ( at least w/ a 
standard gentoo install).
