You can build an application with the shared lib, but that would 
probably involve installing the lib into one of the standard system 
paths, which would mean you need an installer (not good on OS X).

Go for the framework.  In XCode, create a 'Copy Files' build phase that 
will copy SDL.framework (and SDL_image.framework, and whatever else), 
into the Frameworks folder inside the bundle.
