[Qgis-developer] Questions and suggestion on build setup

I was messing around with an Xcode project for Qgis and noticed a
couple oddities in the build (this is with preview 2 source):
- projection selector is built as a library, and is not in the
plugins or providers source folder, so it seems to be a core library
for Qgis, yet it is installed in the plugins folder. Shouldn't a
library be kept with the rest of the libraries? The grass provider
- the scalebar plugin is the only one that has 'lib' prefixed to its
name, and has mixed case:
Also, a suggestion for the Mac app packaging - organize it more Mac-
like in the package. Something like:
other bundled shared libs
all share/qgis stuff
The plugins is an odd one, because 'plugins' is the name of the Qt
plugins folder, and 'PlugIns' is the standard OSX plugins folder
name. Qt plugins I think needs to be in the samme place relative to
the qt frameworks, but I don't know for sure, and there is probably
some way to set that at runtime. On a normal OSX file system, the
case difference in the name shouldn't be a problem, but it would be
on a case-sensitive HFS+ or UFS disk.
The only changes needed are the resources and plugins path functions,
and in the help app for locating the help data.
PS. Xcode project is almost done, I'll turn it loose later in the week.
