It's all pretty much done now in SVN, and should be in the 1.6 release.  See the INSTALL document in SVN for build details.  For Qwt, I have the install_name_tool step there.  All that's left is the final bundling step for the standalone, but that will have to wait for a gdaltools issue.

I was going to wait for after the sudden 1.6 release, but since I'm not having luck with yacc/lex in Xcode I should have at least the core changes done for 1.6 (up to bundling Qt frameworks is done now, but not in SVN yet).
