Looking over William's comments on the thread he pointed out, I ran the following command and got the help system working for my setup. Perhaps someone else can figure out how to get this into the cmake build system so it will be done automagically:

install_name_tool -change @executable_path/lib/libqgis_core.1.4.0.dylib @executable_path/../../../../lib/libqgis_core.1.4.0.dylib /Applications/qgis1.4.0.app/Contents/MacOS/bin/qgis_help.app/Contents/MacOS/qgis_help

> install_name_tool is an automatic thing with cmake during the install step.  It sees qgis_help.app executable as on the same dir level as qgis itself, so it can't backtrack dirs.  You would have to hardcode an install_name_tool *after* install (somehow) in the cmakelists.txt.  The other solution is to create symlinks in qgis_help back to libqgis_core.dylib, and not worry about the install_name.

I wondered if there was some customization code that needs to be included in the cmake process that can be gleaned from your work on getting it built with xcode. If you have any thoughts on this, that would be great.
