This is great!  Please publish the Xcode projects and scripts you use to
make the package and framework so others can build it from CVS.  Miguel or
myself will check them into CVS in case you don't have access.

Urs is correct, after some more digging, it's the 'way' to go.  it's 
going to take me a couple of days to cleanup my own system to get all 
this built and tested (wish I had another machine for this...  oh 

I've got the packages and base installer's built, I just need to run 
through and tweak them into frameworks.  This will also make them much 
easier to install and manage in the future.
