Thanks for the tips, Jeff and Karl. I used perl-cleaner at some point in 
the not-too-distant past but do not recall many particulars. I'll do some 
further investigation of that utility now. Regarding USE flags, I just 
checked and, under /etc/portage/package.use/mythtv I have media-tv/mythtv 
perl python. So it looks as though the USE flag mentioned is already 
enabled, does it not?
