I mentioned it in that I would have expected LiveCode to have either preemptively downloaded any utility it needs to build standalones if it was not already installed OR presented some sort of alert noting that an OS utility was missing when I tried to first build a standalone and that I SHOULD click download. I presume, if I had clicked NO to the download questions from macOS, there may have been a problem building my standalone. Or perhaps not?

It might still build but the standalone may include some byte code for architectures that aren’t your intended target, which I don’t think is really a problem unless you’re uploading your app for the App Store, or perhaps if the extra code adds significantly to the file size (not likely) and you want to keep the DL size down.
