 Short story:

 The version of freetype needs to be updated so mythtvosd will link on OSX
 following a recent QT4 change.

 Long story:

 The osx packager uses 2.1.10 of the freetype library and when configure
 runs "freetype-config --libs" it gets back something like:

 -L{path to wherever you're building}/.osx-packager/build/lib -lfreetype

 and that eventually makes its way to EXTRA_LIBS.

 Changeset [17979] added this bit to mythtvosd.pro:


 so qmake cheerfully removes the reference to the .osx-packager lib dir and
 a pesky link error emerges.

 Updating to a recent version of freetype restores happiness.

 Gratuitous begging: it would be great if the packager stopped forcing disk
 images on regular HFS volumes. It's no longer needed and it's annoying to
 have time machine filling up my backup drive with gigabyte+ images.
 Removing the following if does the trick:

 if (!$OPT{usehdimage} && !CaseSensitiveFilesystem())
   Verbose("Forcing -usehdimage due to case-insensitive filesystem");
   $OPT{usehdimage} = 1;
