I've worked it out. I had made some changes to my version of lclink.sh to allow weak linking but I did some better changes and contributed them to the livecode repo. The changes weren't compatible with each other and there were a few externals that need some manual changes to the .ios files for the new version.

FWIW the changes allow you to write weak-framework instead of framework and also to write something like weak-framework-6.0 Social for a framework you only want linked if you are building against an sdk version and above. mergPop has issues here because it uses the UIActivityViewController which is 6.0+.
