Usually, these "normal" OS X apps are Cocoa apps. If it has a nifty-
keen GUI on it, odds are good that it's a Cocoa app and is thus
packaged as a .app. But otherwise, odds are good that it's a regular
UNIX utility and will be packaged like a regular UNIX utility.
For instance, the Apple Developer Tools are packaged both like .apps
and like regular UNIX utilities. XCode is a Cocoa apps, and as such,
it's packaged as a .app. But Apple's C compiler is a regular UNIX
utility, and as such, it's packaged as /usr/bin/gcc.
