Some updates.  For the time being, at least, I've changed approaches.
Since I couldn't understand much of GUB's OS detection logic, and no one
seemed able to help with that, I abandoned GUB entirely for my latest
attempt and used MacPorts to build a 64-bit LilyPond binary (thanks,

My current plan is now to build a 64-bit build of and put the
LilyPond binary in there, then use or some similar tool to package
the dylib dependencies in the app bundle.  While it's overcomplicated
thanks to poor documentation and obsolescent ways of doing things, this
seems like a potentially easy way to get a usable 64-bit LilyPond Mac .app
bundle that will run on Catalina.

Once I produce a usable Mac 64-bit build, I intend to automate the process
(probably with something like Buildkite) and be able to produce usable
builds for every future release.

Thoughts?  Suggestions?  Considerations?  Anyone want to help?
