Compiling LiveCode on Sierra

Thanks for the pointers.  I was able to get the build working this morning
and confirm what was needed to make the AS Dictionary visible in the build.

Somehow I did get all of my Xcode installs messed up so none would launch
last night.  After I reinstalled 8.3, I ran the script to build the links.
Then I decided that I would rather cache them.  When I deleted the broken
versions of Xcode, I ended up having to relink manually since all of the
SDK links pointed to the old apps instead of the cache.  So, if you want to
cache the SDKs and delete the other copies of Xcode, use the "sh -cache" method first.

Thanks again,
