Hi Dave:

Don't do a special build for me--it may be weeks (months?) before I get enough free time to get into this.  I do want to disable Apple Remote support in Myth as I'm using Apple's DVD player.  I've got a patch around here somewhere that osx-packager.pl uses to disable Apple Remote.

Anyway, it is good to hear that it isn't too crazy-making to build on the Mac.
