Well, I figured out why MTD will not start. Now I just need to figure
out where to find a file!

:/Applications/MythFrontend.app/Contents/MacOS user$ ./mtd
dyld: Library not loaded: libmyth-0.20.0.dylib
Referenced from: /Applications/MythFrontend.app/Contents/MacOS/./mtd
Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap

I’ve looked high and low both on the hard drive and the Web, but I can
not find this libmyth-0.20.0.dylib anywhere.
Any ideas?
