The Distribution Builder failed every time for me on OS X with the 
beat.  There is some code in the build button which refers to a field 
name that doesn't exist.  Since I wanted to test some builds I 
commented out a line in the revdistributionbuilder.rev (in the tools 
folder of the distribution) file.  The line is part of the "Build 
Distribution" button script:

if field "OSX document file" of card 7 is not empty ...

The distribution builder will work on OS X has worked fine for me every 
since.
