So, if I read you correctly, anybody who wants to spin off a Mac 
standalone has to have access to
a Mac machine to:

1. Set the executable bit?  [ Pass me the Alka-Seltzer; how does one do 
that? ]

       "which you can only do on a Mac if I remember right"  not good.

2. Build Mac standalones?

We've been Steved, perhaps?

That is rather bad news as not everybody has the sort of wherewithall 
that they can have a Mac sitting
ready for this.
