[Gdal-dev] GDAL Xcode project

I finished a GDAL Xcode project, available for download on my site.   
This is an alternative to the new framework build option in CVS.

It's much easier to package the framework this way - the build name  
doesn't have to go thru libtool, and thus have to be changed at  
install, and the folder structure is all automatic.

It's also possible to do a Universal build without fuss.  The  
configure method would need fussing with the libtool configuration or  
using other workarounds to get both architectures.  In Xcode it's  
automatic.  Though it does still need a cpl_config.h patch to switch  
endians on the fly (included in the project).

There are sub-projects included to deal with optional formats that  
need external libraries.  You should be able to drop all the sources  
(GDAL and deps) into the project and easily build a full-featured,  
Universal GDAL framework.

See the readme for details.  Note that configuration is manual, but  
hopefully easy to understand.  You just change build Settings at the  
project level for versions, and prefixes for a few dependencies I  
decided didn't belong as sub-projects.

There is also a PROJ framework available.  It also takes care of  
Universal build and packaging issues.
