Change FOOBAR(-version) to appropriate.

echo 'VDRSOURCE_DIR="/usr/src"' >> /etc/make.conf

emerge vdr
vdrplugin-rebuild rebuild

cd /usr/src/vdr-1.6.0/PLUGINS/src/
tar xvzf /path/to/FOOBAR-version.tar.gz
ln -s FOOBAR-version FOOBAR
cd /usr/src/vdr-1.6.0/
make plugins
cp /usr/src/vdr-1.6.0/PLUGINS/lib/libvdr-FOOBAR.so.1.6.0 \
cp /usr/src/vdr-1.6.0/locale/fi_FI/LC_MESSAGES/vdr-FOOBAR.mo \
echo 'FOOBAR' >> /etc/conf.d/vdr.plugins
