I don't feel competent on this anymore. We have fine guys working on it
now, but from old fashioned stuff to narrow it down, might still apply
within limitations, you obviously have no jpeg (devel headers) support
on that gentoo xawtv stuff.

Also, if you should have some NVIDIA or ATI binary drivers in use, bear
with me if you are the first one not failing on such DGA stuff, try with
xawtv with -nodga -remote -c /dev/video0 or whatever.

The rest I would like to pipe to Hans in the first place.

Cheers,
Hermann
