	Yes. There was some reason why that lib could
not be created when AVC wasn't in its link line.
Now that the makefile uses -undefined warning,
it might not have that restriction any more.

	Aah. I was wondering how to do that. Thanks!

	Is it possible for some code there
to access a symbol from that library
(e.g. AVCVideoServicesVersionNumber)
to eliminate that risk?
