Go to macaddict.com and download Ian Sammis' script that copies all the
developer tools from the mounted darwin image to your public beta
system. It's very thorough, but if you find a file Ian missed, email
him and he'll update the script.
Unfortunately I don't have the exact url of the article he wrote handy.
