Thanks George, I thought that the MythVideo gallery view used code from 
gallery, and therefore, if I excluded gallery, that view would be messed 
up.  Thanks for the clarification.

I'm going to remove libtiff from osx-packager.pl and re-run the entire 
build from scratch, see what happens...

Well, it did compile just fine, the problem now is I don't have an SVN 
build to test against.  If your concerns are accurate, then it's 
probably not a good idea anyway as these builds get downloaded by many 
people, I'd want them as stable as possible.  

Thanks for the help.
