There's nothing to fix in the ebuild, because there is nothing wrong 
with the ebuild.  There is no mention of V4L or IVTV because both are 
enabled by default in configure.  They are not being built into your 
packages because configure has determined your system is not capable of 
using them.  Nothing in the ebuild, besides having it locally patch 
against ticket 9595, will force it otherwise.
