Currently that's true.  However, there is no reason this has to be the
case forever -- after all, Xcode is just a pretty GUI wrapper around
gcc and friends.

I was thinking of something like (in the build-app phase):

FRAMEWORK=`sdl-config --prefix`

since this is essentially what is done by the deploy target in Xcode.

It's just one extra symlink needed in the framework distribution.
Ultimately, the question is: does the framework add the symlink, or
the developer?

Yes, I would really like to see this too.
