...I don't think you've really understood or read the makefile in  
darwin_app?  There already ARE ways to "throw" these things out:   
looking down the list, I see breakups such as "darwin_app_wrapper",  
"darwin_app_core", "darwin_app_docs",  
"darwin_app_externals_standard", "darwin_app_externals_flext",  
etc...I wonder what they're for?  Hmm, maybe if I search for those  
terms, then I find that they are weirdly bunched on lines that start  
with "darwin_app_externals" and "darwin_app"...oh drat, it's all too  
much to think about, let's do something else...
