Problems building pcHDTV-extras

This is a good old n00bie question, but I'll ask it anyway: what am I missing to do an actual build of the pcHDTV-extras.tar.gz?

Here's my setup:
Gentoo Linux Distro
Kernel linux-2.6.16-gentoo-r3
pcHDTV HD3000 tuner
MythTV (installed, but not quite working, that's why I need the extras, n'est ce pas?

Steps to reproduce problem:
Boot system
Kill the mythtvbackend process (/etc/init.d/mythtvbackend stop)
cd /usr/src
lynx http://www.pchdtv.com/downloads/pcHDTV-extras.tar.gz
{download the file, save with default name, then quit lynx}
gunzip pcHDTV-extras.tar.gz
tar xvf pcHDTV-extras.tar
cd pcHDTV-extras
make


This doesn't make any of the tools, much to my disappointment.

So, next steps (ala the README - "you can do each step individually by typing 'make firmware'...")

I want to make the tools, so I:
cd v4l-tools
cp /usr/src/pcHDTV-extras/v4l2-driver/videodev2.h . {README says we need it}
make


Output is:
gcc -Wall -O2 tststd.c -o tststd
tststd.c: In function 'main':
tststd.c:211: error: 'VIDEO_MODE_ATSC' undeclared (first use in this function)
...
make: *** [tststd] Error 1


I also copied ../v4l2-driver/videodev2_patch and patched videodev2.h, but that didn't work either (for those who care, it's the only file I could find the definition for VIDEO_MODE_ATSC in)

So, the obvious hacker choice is to rip into the source files and run amok. Instead, since the developers actually read this forum, I'm going to cheat and ask for help.

Help!

Thank you,
X.

Problem solved elsewhere:

Surest way I've found to discover the answer on my own is to ask someone else (so I am sure to look like an idiot who doesn't RTFM/RTFForums).

Apologies for wasting bandwidth.

Just to get this out there, for anyone installing this card in an up to date system like Fedora Core 5 or such.

XINE-HD DOES NOT compile with gcc 4.x. GCC 4x has made serveral "warnings" into "errors" now (stricter adherance to the standards) and thus xine-hd's complie will crap out on you.

Drop back and install a 3.x version of GCC and compile Xine-HD with it, no issues, no problems.
