With the lastest 8.0 IPP packaged with Composer XE 2013 SP1 (initial release and Update 1), the lib*_l.a versions of the libraries are missing. Was this a mistake?
How does one link against the static libraries? Linking against the non "*_l.a" versions (like "libippcore.a") links, but only as a stub to the *.dylib. At runtime we fail to find the *.dylib and fail to launch.
