Well macs are a little weird on this point:
The philosophy is to simplify everything, therefore dependencies are
bundled within the app directly (not static linking). For instance
AMSN comes with its own tcl/tk interpretor...
If you use a package manager (fink portage port etc..) they will
handle dependencies. And some of apple's applications come with an
installer handling some dependencies...
