    Somewhat related and strange. I added my own command line param ("-buildTargetGroup iOS" for example) to force the build target group be set. This is fine on Windows but the OSX version of Unity seems to key off of this command line string.

    "Aborting batchmode due to failure:
    Fatal Error! Build target group 'iOS' could not be used."
