In Xamarin.iOS, AppBundleDir is defined differently such that I can override <CreateAppBundleDependsOn> and AppBundleDir will have already been set.
In Xamarin.Mac, its definition of <CreateAppBundleDependsOn> actually depends on _GenerateBundleName, meaning that AppBundleDir will not have been defined yet.
Example, in Xamarin.iOS, I can do:
<Message Text="$(AppBundleDir)" />
And the correct AppBundleDir will be output. However on Xamarin.Mac, it has not yet been defined...
As a workaround, I need to switch the order of the dependencies in my override of <CreateAppBundleDependsOn> or call the "private" target _GenerateBundleName myself.
It would be great to have consistency here so custom targets can be more easily shared between iOS and Mac.
Fixed in master
