libshadow is part of the Xserver so you'd need a new Xserver and a new
radeon ddx, and to build your ivtv driver against the new Xserver.  
There are 3 parts to a DRI enabled Xorg driver:
1. DRI enabled DDX (handles 2D, Xv, card setup, etc.).  "radeon" ddx
supports all radeons, developed in xorg cvs
2. mesa 3D driver (translates openGL to card's 3D engine). radeon,
r200, r300 specific drivers, developed in mesa cvs
3. drm (kernel modular with arbitrates secure access to the hardware).
 "radeon" drm supports all radeons, developed in dri cvs.

Each is built separately (although xorg cvs requires the mesa source).
