[mythtv-users] osx-packager.pl and git

I'm trying to update my G5 backend to 0.24. I've downloaded the osx-packager script using:

git clone -b OSX-fixes git://github.com/MythTV/packaging.git

After fixing a dead link, I run the script using:

osx-packager.pl -gitrev OSX-fixes -enable-backend -enable-jobtools -pluginskip -m32 -verbose

After crunching away for a long while, I end up with this failure message:

Would someone be so kind as to provide direction for me? Thanks!
