My (limited) experience with the whole framework stuff is that you
end up linking against framework libraries you don't specify.  E.g.,
because MIT Kerberos 5 uses com_err, if you try linking against your
private copy of com_err, you'll get a warning and an error message which
indicates that it's linking against the MacOS-included com_err ... even
though you don't specify that framework on the command line.  Maybe
this is possible to turn off somehow, but I pored over the man pages
for the linker for a while and I didn't see anything obvious.
