> This message lets you know that you have set DYLD_ environment variables, and that they are being ignored. It's usually an error to set DYLD_ environment variables at all anyway, so you might want to consider removing them from your environment.

This is a new 'feature' in 10.8, and is printed even if the user doesn't have any DYLB_<X> environment variables. I don't, and I also get this message. A bit annoying. Hopefully Apple will address it in a future update.

cheers Chris
