        Well, there's also the fact that the Mac is a big-endian
machine.  Anyway, I have been working a little bit at building
mythfrontend for OS X and it was easier to get mplayer up and
running.  That doesn't mean it's hopeless, though.  I already have the
frontend running on Linux/PPC.  The problem for OS X right now is
sound but since esound, SDL, and arts have all been ported, it should
be a matter of time.
