Hmm, that is a bugger.   When you pulled down the different 
osx-packager.pl script, did you blow away the .osx-packager directory 
from the current working directory?  Or did you start the "perl 
osx-packager.pl -svnbranch release-0-21-fixes" in a different 
directory?   The reason I ask is that by default the osx-packager script 
will reuse any compiled dependencies if it finds them in the 
.osx-packager directory.  And if one version of the osx-packager didn't 
compile QT threaded, and the other did, well, you'd still get the error 
as both would see the compiled dependency and "just use it".  

If you only want the release-0-21-fixes, you *could* just download it 
from thesniderpad.com.  (Unless you need it universal, can't remember 
what platform you were on).
