long term support doesn't mean it's going to receive new version of
software for the duration of support.

8.04 doesn't come with Qt4, so you won't be able to compile mythtv 0.22 on it.

You can install Qt4 by enable the backport repository, but if that's
what you're doing, you're better off installing a newer version of
ubuntu as you would be giving up on the main reason on why you want
8.04-LTS in the first place

it compiles fine for me here, provided you have managed to install the newer Qt
