Update build-osx.md

The homebrew instructions were outdated - berkeley-db4 hasn't worked for months, based on the questions I'm seeing on Google/SO.  So I added a section explaining how to install berkeley-db4 using homebrew and move on with your life.  Thanks for the rest of the documentation!

#### Installing berkeley-db4 using Homebrew
The homebrew package for berkeley-db4 has been broken for some time. It will install without Java though.
Running this command takes you into brew's interactive mode, which allows you to configure, make, and install by hand:
```
$ brew install https://raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/master/Library/Formula/berkeley-db4.rb -–without-java
```
These rest of these commands are run inside brew interactive mode:
```
/private/tmp/berkeley-db4-UGpd0O/db-4.8.30 $ cd ..
/private/tmp/berkeley-db4-UGpd0O $ db-4.8.30/dist/configure --prefix=/usr/local/Cellar/berkeley-db4/4.8.30 --mandir=/usr/local/Cellar/berkeley-db4/4.8.30/share/man --enable-cxx
/private/tmp/berkeley-db4-UGpd0O $ make
/private/tmp/berkeley-db4-UGpd0O $ make install
/private/tmp/berkeley-db4-UGpd0O $ exit
```
After exiting, you'll get a warning that the install is keg-only, which means it wasn't symlinked to `/usr/local`. You don't need it to link it to build bitcoin, but if you want to, here's how:
$ brew --force link berkeley-db4
### Building `bitcoind`
