Now that they're packaged together, what will it take for them to be
used that way?  It seems as though the code used to find programs like
commflag and transcode from the backend is completely unsuited to
locating these executables.  

I'd like to fix it, but I need some information.  Do Mac executables
have some ability to report their own locations?  Or if I invoke
mythcommflag without directory qualification from inside mythbackend,
will it be found by virtue of the fact that it's in the same directory
(or package)?
