Versions of LC and Xcode

LC looks for build tools from that hard coded path. It does not matter what Xcode entries are in the prefs this path(applications/xcode.app) is always used when building.

I've added an enhancement request
http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=20779

to keep all paths requested by the user (in the shared prefs), clearly indicating which ones are compatible with the version of LC in use.

There's also an existing request
http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=18841

to report compatible Xcodes in the Mobile Support preferences, rather than in external documents or web pages which may or may not be up to date.

If I was confident enough about my facts I'd like to raise a bug report about the behaviour which requires a copy of Xcode named "Xcode.app" (and in
/Applications?) but I'm not sure of the details. Does anyone else have a clear picture of this?

Many thanks,

Ben
