[mythtv-users] Mac os X intel binary?

I try as much as possible to use the osx-packager.pl script without   
modification, there have been times in the past when this wasn't  
possible, but the current versions are very good thanks to the MythTV  
guys.  The nightly svn builds I have a shell script that builds and  
posts to the website.  Here is the exact command.....

/usr/local/bin/osx-packager.pl -enable-jobtools -enable-backend - 
clean -plugins ALL -verbose

I also make sure that I'm always using the latest osx-packager.pl  
script as usually the changes made to it fix problems.  I think right  
now the current svn script has some DVD stuff disabled so that it  
will compile.  One thing I have noticed is that if you are trying to  
build the 0.18 build with the current svn version of osx-packager, it  
usually doesn't work.  To build the older versions, I would go back a  
few revs until the osx-packager.pl matches the version you want to  
build (of course you'll have to fix the URL's)
