On macOS, dynamic libraries need to have their install_name set to the absolute path where the library will be installed. The gpsd build system doesn't set this property when building libgpsd.dylib, making it unusable. It also doesn't set the library's current_version or compatibility_version, which should also typically be set to some value meaningful to your library versioning scheme. I don't understand scons well enough to suggest where in the SConstruct file to set these flags.
