My goal is to have a robust Linux application that I can develop (at least 
for the present) on Mac OS.

linked twice (I didn't take the time to figure out why a particular library 
was getting linked twice).

Anyhow, I will find a work around, I was only asking if there was a 
relatively easy solution (other than not using Mac OS) that was already
