There are a number of ports (off the top of my head, MacVim is one) that
use xcodebuild to non-interactively build actual Xcode projects; these will
actually require full Xcode, not just the command line compilers and

Trying to figure out what a system has installed and what it might be able
to support is hard enough as it is without having to deal with "what
subsets of development stuff are installed?".
