So don't use --enable-appbundle with --enable-debug. The debug bundle
should still work in that instance shouldn't it?

I'm missing something I guess - whilst it only links statically with wx
and pg, we already have --enable-static which works fine on intel and
ppc macs. That's the option I now force on when building an appbundle.
