    Test on another computer before releasing. If you don't have another
    computer, set up an external hard drive with the OS installed on it, and
    test with the Mac booted from that drive.

    This might be overkill for Zero-link errors, but it'll help you catch
    lots of other potential problems. Ensuring that the software works on
    just one Mac before releasing is not a very robust development system.

    I do my deployment builds with a custom perl script which uses xcodebuild
    to build the project, bundles all of the components together, creates a
    disk image, generates packages for the autoupdate system, etc. I know that
    it takes care of everything I need, so I don't have to worry about
    forgetting anything when I make a release. With a system like that, it
    would be trivial to add a clean build to every deployment.

    That said, ZeroLink has cost me more time than it ever had any hope to
    save, so I've turned it off for good, at least on my current project.

    This is the key problem with XCode. By using "Styles" they destroy the
    ability to separate debug and production executables. (Yes, it can be
    done if you jump through a *lot* of hoops.)

    I understand what their intent was, but it's very poorly implemented.
    It also makes things like having library and application targets in the
    same target almost impossible since the settings for each type are
    usually not compatible.

    I think Apple realizes how ed up the Styles model is, and over
    time will fix it. But until then, the best thing to do is to create
    separate debug and production targets, and use a single Style which
    overrides none of the target settings.
