Some days, you just get that lucky.

I was browsing Google Code Hosting randomly last night, looking at various OS X related tags, and I found a real gem of a tool that looks like the best thing since sliced bread.

The tool is relocation-tool or rtool. It's this nifty little shell script that lets you take foo.dylib and make it into foo.framework! I've not played with swapping out dylib dependencies with frameworks yet, but it looks like it can do that too.

I just tested the tool on a copy of Serf and it worked great. It also worked on libsvn_wc.

Hopefully there will be a future post about how to get gstreamer and all dependencies rebuilt into frameworks.
