I can't find /usr/bin/otool any more in Mountain Lion.

  1. Does anybody know why otool is removed?
  2. Is there any alternative for otool in Mountain Lion.

I rolled back your changes to the original question. I think it was more clear, and since you marked my answer as correct then I think it should stay this way. If you still have questions about other libraries, you should probably just start a new question. – jtbandes Jul 30 '12 at 6:50

In a somewhat-recent version of the Xcode developer tools, the command-line utilities were moved into a separate package. You can either install them from inside Xcode or just download them separately. See my answer here for more details: I installed Xcode but I still don't have gcc in my terminal.

thanks for your answers. But I still find a lot of other libraries can't be found in mountain lion that are depended by existing libraries. How should I resolve this? – Kane Jul 28 '12 at 7:12
What are you trying to do? Have you ever used Homebrew? – jtbandes Jul 28 '12 at 7:59
I installed Zend CE server on 10.7. It works well. However it doesn't work after I upgraded Mac to mountain lion. I found some system libraries depended by php of Zend CE can't be found in 10.8. – Kane Jul 28 '12 at 8:02
This sounds like a completely different question, perhaps you should post it separately. It might also help to ask the community of Zend CE. – jtbandes Jul 28 '12 at 8:19
thanks for your information. I found a workaround for my php issue. – Kane Jul 30 '12 at 6:42
