I'm interested in knowing the same thing. Whilst not a major hassle on
OSX (unless this is copying library files around my system - in which
case I strongly object!), I cannot understand why the old ability to
build Blender and have it "just work" has been deliberately removed.

It would be one thing if I were asking for something that didn't exist
before (given the change involves only a minor hassle) but, from what I
can tell, a previously better situation has been deliberately made
worse. What do we get in exchange for the added hassle?
