It must be standard in gentoo not to include latin1 support for mysql,
as I have never specified -latin1, that is just default.  I've never
had any other database problems in the years of using myth.  This is
my 3rd myth server, so I can't be sure that the other ones didn't have
latin1, but they have all been gentoo boxes, so my guess is they were
configured the same.

Actually maybe I do have some weird latin1 support built in, but swedish?!
mysql> SHOW CHARSET LIKE 'latin1%';
| Charset | Description          | Default collation | Maxlen |
| latin1  | cp1252 West European | latin1_swedish_ci |      1 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

very odd...
