Hi Paul - those errors are completely unrelated.  The GitHub runners do use
Homebrew to make a test build, but they do not use the compile script nor

Those errors appear to be induced by the Homebrew community moving their
python version up to 3.12 recently.  From the runner output:

==> Pouring python at 3.12--3.12.1.ventura.bottle.tar.gz
Error: The `brew link` step did not complete successfully

I had to work around similar errors in the build script by forcing the
install of python3.11 to stay compatible with mythtv's needs.
