After much searching, I found the source of the error in the script
has_library libqt-mt ||
    die "ERROR! You must have a threaded Qt installed to compile MythTV."

So I commented out those two lines and ran osx-packager again.  It
failed on the very next two lines:
enabled lamemp3 && has_library libmp3lame && has_header lame/lame.h ||
    die "ERROR! You must have the Lame MP3 encoding library installed
to compile MythTV."

Now the ./build/lib/ directory is chock full of files like
libmp3lame*.dylib and libQt*.dylib, so I must be doing something very
basic wrong.
I install Xcode tools, and i download and run the osx-packager script.
 What else am I missing?
