I faced the same problem. You get the bundle but afterwards the libraries are
not found. Since I am not a MacOS expert, the only workaround I found was to
create a fireup up script with Platypus. In that script I was positioning the
library path. You can get my application at sourceforge.net/projects/pymca and
see what I mean. The startup script is inside the bundle. If you have problems
with it, I can give you more information on Monday.
