 "make install" on Mac OS X used to generate the app bundles in
 /usr/local/bin.  Now it only generates the command line executables,
 leaving no way to launch the frontend from the Finder.  I tried running
 "contrib/OSX/osx-bundler.pl /usr/local/bin/mythfrontend /usr/local/lib" to
 generate the app bundle, but the bundle that was created had no Resources
 directory, and thus, no icon.  Is there some other step that I need to do
 generate the app bundle properly?

 To get by for now, I moved the bundle created by osx-bundler.pl into
 /Applications, removed the Frameworks tree (seemed redundant), manually
 created the Resouces/application.icns file, and then made
 MacOS/mythfrontend a symbolic link to /usr/local/bin/mythfrontend.  That
 works for now, and will survive future "make install"s.
