Livecode iOS Externals and XCode 4.6

I am trying to build and test a simple iOS external using the Livecode 
iOS Externals "LiveCodeSDK-R14" following the instructions at

My mac is running 10.8 with LiveCode 5.5.4 and XCode 4.6 with iOS SDKs 
for 5.1, 6.0 and 6.1.

No matter which version of the iOS SDK I select in the build settings 
for the XCode project, when I try and build the external using the 
'test' environment (to use the iOS simulator) I get the following 

"The selected destination does not support the architecture for which 
the selected software is built.  Switch to a destination that supports 
that architecture in order to run the selected software"

If I try to build the external by itself, it appears to be successful, 
however when I then try to build the standalone app from inside 
LiveCode, I get the following message when it tries to link in the 

"linking for armv7 failed with arm-apple-darwin10-llvm-g++-4.2:  
No such file or directory"

Has anyone got the iOS externals SDK working with XCode 4.6 and 
LiveCode 5.5.4?
