That's good to know.  I'm not sure if that's going to cure the problem
that's apparently revealed by install_name_tool:

  [osx-pkg] Writing Info.plist for myth framework

  [osx-pkg] Could not find @executable_path/../Frameworks/qt-mt.framework/qt-mt
  Died at ./osx-packager.pl line 1031.

I'm not sure if that's deep, or ignorable.
