So I was expecting some build errors when the backend failed to
compile against the firewire support library, but no such luck (?)
Perhaps the configure script detected lack of firewire support and
just didn't include that component?

I ended up with a mythtvbackend.app, which I suppose needs to be
assembled into a "Framework" the way the front end is?

Being mostly a non-Perl-er and having not done any Mac development
since OS9, I was hoping someone could help me with automation.
