Making homebrew more robust and truly freestanding

by William Woodruff for GitHub

I'd like to do two things: I would like to make Homebrew's installation system fully independent of XCode/Development Toolkit. I believe that this can be done by building a generic kit of key utilities and libraries and distributing it as a bottle. I would also like to accomplish compartmentalization with respect to how Homebrew handles bottle dependencies.
