For cross-building the PyInstaller bootloader we are using the ideas
based on OSXcross [1]. Basically we are extracting parts of the SDK from
Xcode and using this cross-build the bootloader. The SDK as a whole must
only be used on a Apple device, but parts of the SDK *may* not have this
limitation.[*] If you are interested who we do this, plase have a look
at [2] and [3].

[*] I did no check the license in detail. If Apple stepps up and
complains, we'll simply stop delivering a pre-compiled bootloader.
