Trouble is, the osx-packager.pl script is selecting the configure file
- it's not something I'm doing.

Before, I have tried running osx-packager.pl with the -svnbranch
release-0-21-fixes flag.  This appears to grab the configure file you
reference above, from -fixes.  This dies on line 2673:

2672     has_library libqt-mt ||
2673	    die "ERROR! You must have a threaded Qt installed to compile MythTV."

When I posted this error to the list, it was pointed out that I was
trying to grab the wrong code (presumably by the release-0-21-fixes
