	Yes. I see your point. Maybe contrib/osx-bundler.pl ?

	Yes, I know that you and Jeremiah are working on that.
As soon as 0.19 is out, I will start adding that (and some
neat Mac OS X FireWire backend stuff that someone wrote :-)
into SVN.

	Hold off until after 0.19. It will be easier for you to
keep it synchronised with SVN, and I don't actually have any
FireWire enabled STBs to test with yet. (Australia doesn't
mandate that our Digital TV or Cable boxes require that,
so I am looking for a cheap Composite->FireWire box on eBay)

	Yes. I have noticed that. Don't know what has changed
to cause that. I will try the qmake fix, but you are right
about it masking a much worse problem.
