You can post it to the dev list, it may very well be a problem that they 
need to fix.  But, in my experience, if you are trying to compile the 
release-21-fixes branch, your best bet is to use the osx-packager.pl in 
the specific branch you want to compile.

For example, if you wanted to build the current trunk release, use the 
osx-packager.pl from the trunk svn repository.  If you want to build the 
release-21-fixes branch, use the osx-packager.pl from that branch.  
Otherwise, you end up with weird errors and problems that probably don't 
need to be fixed.
