[Proj] PROJ as embeddable framework for Mac OS

I need to reconfigure PROJ as an embeddable framework for Mac OS.   
This is so that I can make a drag-and-drop installable app (one that  
does not need an installer, as is recommended by current Apple  
guidelines).  The binaries posted on the Kyngchaos site are built as  
system-wide frameworks.

The Kyngchaos port has this tantalizing note in the ReadMe.rtf:

> Before linking (or maybe after linking) the framework copy's

What exactly do I need to pass as arguments to install_name_tool?   
What -id am I working with?

What are the "messy" dependencies referred to?

What change do I need to make to manage the data folder?  What's the  
default as built?

This would be a lot easier to understand if the build instructions  
were included in the framework.  Or are they now included if I do a  
configure/build on the Mac?
