...well, "man install_name_tool" will tell ya lots on osx, but  
barring that, it allows you to change the dylibs that a binary is  
linked to, without re-linking...typical usage here is something like  

install_name_tool -change /sw/lib/libruby.1.8.dylib /Users/tigital/ 
puredataDev/gridflow/lib/libruby.1.9.0.dylib gridflow.pd_darwin

...very useful when working with things like fink and still trying to  
make transportable applications...
