This is what I use

cd /somewhere/temp/with-lots-of-storage

git clone git://github.com/MythTV/mythtv.git mythtv
git clone git://github.com/MythTV/mythtv.git mythweb

The 'mythtv' pull creates a 'mythtv' folder with 'mythtv' and 
'mythplugins' folders below it.

The git clone is about somewhere around 800Meg and takes 1.5G after you 
have run 'make'.
Mythweb on the other hand is relatively tiny: 11M.

(Hah! My first computer had 16K memory!!)
