You’re quite right; thanks for the correction (although builds with
variants still go from source, right?). I still think .app bundles play
nicer with Mac OS and are easier to work with in terms of being
self-contained, but I should have been more precise.

(Fun fact: the MacPorts install on the box that I’m using to produce the
LilyPond builds *does* have to install everything from source, because I
put MacPorts in a nonstandard location to make system administration
easier.  Apparently MacPorts builds for a specific installation location...)
