I have another bug that I'd like to fix: Mac/ReadMe contains an  
error: it claims that you can build the frameworkinstall into a  
temporary directory and then move it into place, but that isn't  
actually true. The erroneous paragraph is this:

    Note that there are no references to the actual locations in the  
code or
    resource files, so you are free to move things around afterwards.  
For example,
    you could use --enable-framework=/tmp/newversion/Library/ 
Frameworks and use
    /tmp/newversion as the basis for an installer or something.

My proposed fix is to drop this paragraph. There is no bugreport for  
this yet, I got notified of this issue in a private e-mail.
