	I really would prefer not to have to patch Qt to
build MythTV packages. I finally got a copy of 10.4,
so should be able to do some 10.4.3 builds soon.
If I can verify the problem, I will fire off a bug
report to TrollTech.

	The latest version of the script builds and packages
all the relevant programs, which is just a smidgen bigger
than 1gB, so I have increased to 1.2

	Should be fixed in the latest version?
(i.e. it builds & runs for me)
