Yes, you've got two hurdles to overcome:
   - the mismatch in header files
   - the mismatch in shared library kind, a bundle is not a dylib

It seems that on OS X, bundles are preferred when a library is dynamically 
loaded and unloaded via the dlopen() APIs, and a dylib is preferred when 
you're using the linker to link your code against it. A bundle cannot be 
linked to with the linker, a dylib cannot be unloaded.
