#9291: OSX Packaging extra copies

 Each of the application bundles built by osx-packager.pl (.24-fixes,
 R27334, 32 bit) are about 85 MB bigger than they need to be.  Each of the
 Frameworks includes 2 copies of the compiled code.  For example, the
 MythFrontend.app/Contents/Frameworks/mythtv.framework/ folder includes the
 11.4 MB binary and then another copy is in
 MythFrontend.app/Contents/Frameworks/ mythtv.framwork/Versions/A/.  I
 believe normally that there should be a _link_ from the top level folder
 to the binary in ../Versions/A/.

 For the 6 application bundles I built (Myth[AVTest | Backend |
 Filldatabase | Frontend | TV-Setup | Welcome]), that is over 500 MB of
 wasted space.  My old .21-fixes applications did not exhibit this problem.
