Well, I've got the backend finding those bundled executables, but now
when those executables run, they can't find any of the libraries
needed.  dyld bars at me with "image not found."  I'm working on
what's needed to make this right, but I sure would appreciate any
clues people have.  I guess it's something missing in one of those
plists we write into the bundle...?
