There's a very brief how-to on the Gentoo wiki so I assume Gentoo is an 
option.  If that's true, portage has pretty much anything one can imagine.  
Whether it will compile is the only question mark.  Someone over at 
mythtvtalk.com is actually attempting this right now with Gentoo.  He posted 
a couple screenshots of his PS3 running YDL.

These are the exact reasons I'm going to get one.  I can play games and 
watch Blu-ray while helping contribute to myth at the same time.  Oh what 
fun awaits!
