Effectively option #2 violates the GPL anyway since, if it's an integral part of the app and loaded as a bundle, it's still *required* by the app.   It's a legal gray area.

The only thing that we use BFD for is to print pretty exception traces (which is more important on platforms with buggy loaders).  I doubt that there are any apps that actually depend on this, and if there are then there really shouldn't be...
