Hi Ryan:

Sorry, we went through this before:


The framework I need is from Apple's Firewire software development 
kit and (I believe) the license doesn't allow distribution.  You <g> 
were the one that suggested adding a variant (to the mythtv-core.25 
port) to link to the framework.  I just need some reasonable place to 
store the framework.
