This obviously doesn't lead to the desired effect of updating the xib files within the application bundle in case VLC-tmp.app is still around.

I don't like this commit because of something else:
Everytime you do 'make' after some changes which are NOT xib-related, the complete VLC-tmp.app will be recreated. This takes some time (especially the xcodebuild step) which is not needed when I understand correctly.

Perhaps you can find a better solution, that also fixes your problem. But before this commit I thought the VLC-tmp.app would be already regenerated if its necessary, and would be leave at it is if its not.
