OK, I've checked that all the bits that were recently modified 
(latest 0.27-fixes but including the two commits to master) work OK 
for me on 10.6.8.  Well, except AirPlay of photos--I've tried a LOT 
of different things but can't make that work.  Must be a MacPorts-Qt4 
glitch but it eludes me.

Also tested the build on 10.9.2 and all seems well there.

I know it is not a big deal to you, but I finally tracked down a 
build problem that has plagued me from the start on 
MacPorts--installed versions of the libs would be referenced due to 
an '-L/opt/local/lib' early in the linker's args.  I finally realized 
that it only affected libmythtv.  mythtv/libs/libmythtv/libmythtv.pro 
includes the line:


configure has filled FREETYPE_LIBS with the output from 
'freetype-config --libs'.  On OS X, I get:

$ freetype-config --libs
-L/opt/local/lib -lfreetype -L/opt/local/lib -lz -lbz2 -L/opt/local/lib -lpng14

I'm guessing that FreeType is trying to be 'helpful' since MacPorts 
installed it to a 'non-standard' location.

Anyway, the line in libmythtv.pro is wrong.  FreeType's libs _are_ 
included later in the linker parameters.  Other uses of 
QMAKE_LFLAGS_SHLIB are for linker flags, not library references.  For 
example, line 83 of libmythupnp.pro sets:

QMAKE_LFLAGS_SHLIB += -flat_namespace

The above is in 0.27-fixes.  In master, I see that dblain wrapped the 
problem line in a conditional so that it would be excluded on 
win32-msvc*.  I presume it was messing with him, too!

I've deleted the offending line (line 52) and built successfully with 
both XCode 3.2.6 and XCode 5.1.0.

Should I raise a bug for this?
