Correct, right now the system builds only the binaries. But as far as I
understand, .app bundles are only directories with some additional meta
information in an XML file. So in the end, it's a matter of somebody
investing the time and figuring out how to put that together.
(FWIW I've almost finished a rewrite of the system in Python which I
hope can eventually land in LilyPond itself. Still need to work on a
few details, but hopefully not too long...)

Can you explain? Just extracting different versions of the binaries
produced by the above system will work just fine. IIRC you only need to
adjust the paths in Frescobaldi, right?
