#59848: Avahi-daemon fails to start on catalina

 It appears as though avahi-daemon wants to create a directory at `/run
 /avahi-daemon` when it starts.  On catalina, `/` is now read-only, and
 this fails.

 It seems like there isn't a way to change the path that avahi wants to
 create this directory from the command line.  I suspect that it'll have to
 be changed when the package is compiled.

 I tested the same port in Mojave, and it doesn't hit this problem.

 Finally, there are a few obsolete keys in the launchd plist that need to
 be updated.
