Prebinding question

  • Is there any way to convert a non-prebound framework into a prebound
    one without rebuilding it (since I don't have the source)

    When I build, I get the following warning:

    ld: warning prebinding disabled because dependent library ... is not
    prebound.
    .
    It seems that linking against even one non-prebound framework prevents
    prebinding to any framework, which can slow down launch times.

    I figured there might be some magic with otool, nm and friends that
    could correct the problem.

    I think in theory one could disassemble the framework binary with otool
    and then recompile/link it. Offhand I would guess though that otool
    doesn't produce useable enough output.
