rpm -ev --nodeps "myth*"
will remove the packages without caring for dependencies.

Another approach would be to compile the source into a new rpm and 
install that. Install the myth src rpm, replace the tar file (in 
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES on Fedora/RedHat boxes) with the newer one and 
"rpmbuild -ba <SPECFILE>".
