Hi Olivier,

please send your messages about IPython to the list, not directly to
me, so that others can also assist with the problem and the discussion
is publicly archived.  Here is the mailing list info:

Indeed, as you already found out, it seems XCode is needed on the mac
because of the unconditional call to otool.

That sounds like a bug to me that we've effectively made Xcode a
dependency on OSX, we shouldn't do that.  But I'd like correction from
our osx experts in case I'm wrong, before opening a ticket on this...

Cheers,
