1.2.1 not starting up on osx

Siculars,

David looked at the issue a bit this morning and it is caused by epmd
segfaulting on startup.  Now the good news is that there isn't
something inherently wrong in Riak on OSX, but it is still not a good
thing.  I suspect it has to do with OSX and it's changes to its toolchain
amongst different versions.  Admittedly, I don't have a great build story
for OSX.  It is tough to get VM's of different versions of OSX, so the i386
OSX package is built on one machine and the 64bit build is built on yet
another machine.  I wish right now I had a better answer for you, but I
don't.  I will try in our next release to capture a more consistent
OS/Kernel version for the build on OSX.

If you want to make your own OSX package that works with your OS &
toolchain you can do something like the following:

```

$ git clone git at github.com:basho/riak
$ cd riak
$ git checkout riak-1.2.1
$ make package RELEASE=1
$ cd package/packages
$ cp *.tar.gz <whereever>

```

Sorry again for the trouble.  FWIW, the 64bit package works on my system
which is "12.2.0 Darwin Kernel Version 12.2.0"

Thanks,
Jared
