I have noticed an odd tendency for the standalone builder to insert two 
copies of the engine in OS X builds. One copy is directly inside the app 
bundle, and the second copy is in app/Contents/MacOS/. Deleting the one 
just inside the app bundle doesn't seem to hurt anything and will halve 
the size of the build.

I haven't quite got it nailed down yet, but I think it may have 
something to do with building a new standalone on top of an existing one 
(that is, the new one replaces the old one on disk.) If someone can 
verify that, we could bugzilla it.
