Thanks, using osx-packager from master without -gitrev fails when MythMediaDevice calls mythcdrom-darwin on my old PPC. Note that I'm running with -pluginskip, so I didn't expect to have any calls to mythcdrom.

Running osx-packager from master with -gitrev = either OSX-fixes or fixes/0.24 fails on checkout --merge as shown above.
