I am not a developer but a couple of us were able to build the front and back ends recently both on a G5 and an intel Mac. You can read more at AVS:
I don't have a compatible tuner so I'm not doing much with it (long story). The other person I worked with (Joann) has it working with an HDHomeRun and wants to connect it to a Firewire source. Last I heard, she hasn't done that yet.
BTW, the Firewire SDK 23 initially caused the build to abort. It appeared that osx-packager.pl was trying to build everything in the Examples folder. So I deleted Examples and the build then completed successfully.
