[mythtv-users] OSX Video Playback problems

Here is a simple patch to build on Lion and Xcode 4.

There is one gotcha when building Qt. When you build Qt 4.7.4 it will fail with a problem with the java script core library in webkit. When it fails you will need to change directory to 


and then do a 'make'. When that completes go back to your build directory and reissue the osx-packager command.

I have also built successfully on 10.6.8 with Xcode 3 using the patched osx-packager.

I have NOT been able to test the resulting apps.

The main problem is that gcc compiler in Xcode 4 has a problem compiling. This patch will revert to gcc-4.2 which should have been installed by Xcode 4.
