I think that's precisely it. The people advocating the dylib approach 
tend to be people coming from a traditional unix environment. It sounds 
like the original poster was porting from Linux, so this is probably 
what will make more sense to him.

I'm not sure what optimizations are applied to the dylib (-Os/n?, G3, 
G4, G5?), which is another reason to build yourself.

Then of course there's the unix mindset of not really trusting anything 
you haven't compiled yourself (hey, that's why I was a Gentoo user pre-OS X)
