The only thing I'm wondering is why "pear" in particular?   I think
it's good, because it's imaginative.  Additionally, I wouldn't have
wanted the tool to be called gsxcodebuild or gspbxbuild or even
gsbuild as I have a distinct allergy to things being prefixed with GS
simply because they can be. Part of this comes from having committed
the sin myself in the form of my "gopen" tool. :)   The only reason
it's not "open" is because there is an open keyword/tool on most
versions of Linux with which it would conflict. O_o

pearbuild because it builds apple software but in an non-apple environment,

Some cultural background: in the german language we proverbial (don't) compare apples and pears (Äpfel und Birnen) as opposed to apples and oranges in english speaking countries:,Aepfel-mit-Birnen-vergleichen, 4592,d.html

You can see this pun here: (PowerPC Architecture Emulator - basically a virtual machine which acts as a Mac), here: (a company offering hackintoshes) and here: too.
