The only thing I'm wondering is why "pear" in particular?   I think
it's good, because it's imaginative.  Additionally, I wouldn't have
wanted the tool to be called gsxcodebuild or gspbxbuild or even
gsbuild as I have a distinct allergy to things being prefixed with GS
simply because they can be.   Part of this comes from having committed
the sin myself in the form of my "gopen" tool. :)   The only reason
it's not "open" is because there is an open keyword/tool on most
versions of Linux with which it would conflict. O_o

Also, it seems pbxbuild is the *previous* name of xcodebuild.   So, it
would be clearer when talking about pearbuild vs. pbxbuild vs.
xcodebuild since it would be obvious you are referring to GNUstep's
tool instead of a previous version of the build tool on OS X.
