Yes, but my toolchain did not change at all between VLC CVS from a week 
ago (when 0.6.0 built on OSX) and VLC CVS now (which does not for me).  
I tend to think that I updated /usr/local incorrectly.  Can someone 
please check to see if the link points to the correct stuff, and then 
send me the link again?  I'm not sure if the one on the website is the 
correct one?
