OK, I guess I have to put a logical OR between these options right ? :-)
So I chose 3/ and was able to do this at runtime:

(require 'cocoa)
(ccl::define-special-objc-word "CA")
(objc:load-framework "QuartzCore" :quartzcore)
> ns:ca-layer

However, if I put these 3 lines of code in a build script (ending with a
call to build-application), the app doesn't run anymore, as show below. 
I've also tried to put these lines so that they are evaluated also at
application run time (not [only] when I build it), but this doesn't work

Should I really be 2 days patient, or is it something else ?

Thanks !


Error during early application initialization:

value #<A Dead Mac Pointer> is not of the expected type MACPTR.
