build stuff

This is just a small thing but it there any reason why the build directory for the different platforms can't be standardised? I see iOS and Mac are under _build and android is under build-android-armv6/livecode/out. It would seem to me to be nice if you are building one of the mobile platforms on Mac or Linux that the stuff that needs to be compiled for the host os like lc-compile etc could just be found in the correct build directory rather than rebuilding them.

The other thing I was wondering about and something that would help me for android externals if the LiveCode-Community jar could be given the jar extension. I've tried symlinking but no dice so at the moment I need to manually add the .jar.

revpdfprinter.bundle needs to be added to the copy phase so it works in build and run.

As I understand it, the _build directory isn't anything that we can do something about -- it's due to the way xcodebuild works (I'm happy to be corrected on that point).

Please go ahead and file bug reports for the other two issues you mention!
