That happens automatically, behind the scenes, when you use an SDK.   
The problem with the SDKs in Tiger (it's fixed in Xcode 3 for Leopard)  
is that they don't have either /Library/Frameworks or /usr/local  
symlinks to find user libraries and frameworks.

Add those symlinks, and linking (and includes) should start working.

/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk/Library/Frameworks -> /Library/ 

/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk/usr/local -> /usr/local
