Yes, my build dir is stored in the .xcconfig. Parsing those is no easy matter: you can have environmental variables in there, #include other .xcconfigs... 

The annoying thing is that the path is in the project's executable setting: writing the following AppleScript shows the proper path

tell application "Xcode"
	tell project 1
		set a to active executable
		a's path
	end tell
end tell

BUT the executable I don't think changes when configurations are switched (right?)

OTOH, would that make a good fall back when we can't find the executable even in $PROJECT_DIR/build ?

Hope this helps,
