Thanks for the reply! As far as the ebuild, it's pretty cobbled
together and also has a lot of patches involved.

The reason I posted the question is that that old ebuild had a
dependency for virtual/linuxtv-dvb-headers specifically when the dvb
USE was set, and that package was apparently removed. I'm not sure
what it originally did, but it sure it seems like it was related to
kernel headers. I assume that probably means I don;t need the dvb USE
at all. At least that's what I'm hoping.
