Hi Joann:

Donno why it doesn't like OSX-fixes.  I don't have a development 
environment set up here at the moment.  Try "-gitrev fixes/0.24". 
You want to build a 24.1 version, right?

If you point your browser at https://github.com/MythTV you can browse 
the code repository.  The OSX-fixes branch was last updated in April. 
I believe Nigel has rolled all the good bits into the .24 and master 
branches since then.
