It would be great if someone did contact Apple but my guess (based on
past experience) is that they will tell you to create Xcode projects
and then use xcodebuild to do a command line build.

It really looks like CMake 2.6.x has what is needed. There are some
"newbie" issues that will need to be asked on the cmake list but it
looks like CMake may be about 99% "there" for frameworks.
