I have incorporated William's patches for OSX framework builds into  
CVS.  A bug tracking these developments can be found at <http:// 
bugzilla.remotesensing.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1297>.  A description of  
OSX Frameworks can be found at <http://www.kernelthread.com/mac/osx/ 
programming.html>.  These developments shouldn't have any impact on  
the normal build process, and they only (optionally) pertain to GDAL  
on OSX.

To try it out, configure your GDAL tree with --with-macosx-framework,  
and when you do 'make install', it will place the framework build in / 
Library/Frameworks/GDAL.framework.  This build option should allow  
you to work with GDAL inside of XCode in a way that it expects and  
provide some symmetry for other open source projects doing the  
framework thing on OSX like R and OSSIM.

Thanks for the detailed notes and patches William,
