For wget, I just put in the full path (same as yours).
I've been compiling and running Myth on Mac since 0.20 and I don't believe I've ever been successful in building the Perl bindings. Several pre-requisites are necessary (I have a list around here, somewhere) that are not installed by default on OS X. I've tried CPAN and manual installs to try to make configure happy--with no success. 'Course, I'm not a developer and what unix/linux I know is gleaned from this list!
If you can get the Perl bindings to build, I'd really appreciate a step-by-step recipe!
If you can't, you can do what I did. MySQL installs some command line tools for backing up, checking and optimizing the database. The script I hacked together is on my page of the wiki <http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/User:Pvr4me>. Remember the "I'm not a developer" part?! ;) I run this nightly through launchd and it emails me a log. Maybe it would help as a starting point...
