While trying to get the tvos template building I hit the following compilation failure:
/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/TVOS/Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets: error : Tool exited with code: 1. Output: /Applications/Xcode7.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/strip: object: /Users/kumpera/Projects/bitcode.me.up/bitcode.me.up/bin/iPhone/Release/bitcode.me.up.app/bitcode.me.up malformed object (unknown load command 9)
This was due to xcode-select pointing to Xcode 7 (and not 7.1 beta 3).
Other parts of the build process don't depend on its path to find the right tools to invoke.
I assume we want to make our toolchain independent of xcode-select. If that's the case, this is a bug.
Yes, other tools (from mtouch or msbuild) all respect XS settings - and `strip` should do the same.
Don't we just use /usr/bin/strip?
@Jeff, no (at least we should not). That can get you to the situation above (we have a similar issue with lipo in the past).
No, I'm saying the code *already* uses /usr/bin/strip

[msbuild] Use the strip from within the configured Xcode.app bundle
Fixes bug #34687?
@Jeff thanks. My _at least we should not_ meant it is wrong (and it was not what mtouch was doing before) for the reason Rodrigo filed this bug report.
/usr/bin/strip is a small wrapper that calls the `strip` command from the `xcode-select`ed directory, which might not be the right one (as specified in XS preferences). If you select a newer Xcode (in XS) then the current `strip` (or other tools like `lipo`) might not understand the new formats.
