True. What I was trying to say is - letting the script DL+build
Qt is safe. Possibly safer than downloading a prebuilt one
(which will probably not have the required MySQL plugins built in).
Note that I'm not sure if the Qt libraries are 10.4 safe.
I do remember seeing -macosx_version_min in some Qt makefiles,
but can't remember which Qt version or why.

As have I, now.
What was interesting was that the error was in one of libmyth*.dylib
instead of the binary I loaded (mythfrontend) - which told me the
main() wrapper is compatible, but not the library load table :-(

I also tested that last night. The FFmpeg Makefiles
are not currently compatible with the make in 10.4:
/usr/bin/make -C external/FFmpeg
common.mak:28: *** unterminated call to function `foreach': missing `)'. Stop.
make: *** [external/FFmpeg] Error 2
which reminds me, time to update the WiKi:
