By doing this, you are assuring that mythffmpeg is not available on
OSX, which further means that nuvexport is not available on OSX.  If
you have also disabled mythffplay, you will have disabled something
that was specifically asked for for debugging purposes.

I guess for now, this may be the best way to move forward to get OSX
builds on their feet again, but somehow, it seems that doing so puts
OSX as a second-class build, not containing everything that the Linux
build has.  Perhaps this is inevitable for now, but should we aim to
fix it over time?
