Quick question for those who know(TM):  so if we build the 
AVCVideoServices.framework (outside of MacPorts), is it appropriate 
to store it to store it in /Library/Frameworks/ ?  From the look of 
it, third party software uses this folder for frameworks but I can't 
quickly see a definitive answer on the Apple Developer site.
