Hi Sean,

It seems like I was doing your plan 2: setting the path in the XCode  
source tree preferences and then telling the project to use those  
paths to find the libraries needed for my project  But XCode didn't  
seem like to do that.  So I fall back to adding the library  
references directly to the project (Plan 1).  That seems to work  
every time I do it that way.  There's probably some little setting  
somewhere in XCode that I've overlooked.  Thanks for your help.
