Module::Build::Platform::MacOS - Builder class for MacOS platforms

The sole purpose of this module is to inherit from "Module::Build::Base" and override a few methods. Please see Module::Build for the docs.

MacPerl doesn't define $Config{sitelib} or $Config{sitearch} for some reason, but $Config{installsitelib} and $Config{installsitearch} are there. So we copy the install variables to the other location
On MacOS we set the file type and creator to MacPerl so it will run with a double-click.
Because there's no easy way to say "./Build test" on MacOS, if dispatch is called with no arguments and no @ARGV a dialog box will pop up asking what action to take and any extra arguments.

Default action is "test".

Need to unlock the Build program before deleting.
