Building the new standalone builder a bit complex, but not impossible.
I had some personal problems at that time that prevented me from doing so!

I received the neccessary infos from scotland but this is of course nothing 
that should go into a public mailing list,
so I did not publish this info!

Adding support for iOS (and RevMoile in general) was explicitely NOT allowed to 
be put into the MC standalone builder
due to licensing issues! At least that was the state about a year ago, don't 
know how this is today.

But Ken knows about this and will check this with Heather before taking any 
action in this direction!
