Description John Miller [MSFT] 2016-08-05 11:55:52 UTC

   The documentation (https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/macios/binding/objective-sharpie/examples/cocoapod/) is missing a few key things to actually complete a binding. 

**Steps to Reproduce:**

    * how to create fat framework(s) from the pod / sharpie output
    * how to attach the pod dependencies to the binding project (pods often depend on other pods)
    * how to deal with direct lib references (eg refs to libZ and libSqlite3) which seem to be ignored by the binding project
    * how to deal with different header locations - sharpie pod bind doesn't allow clang arguments

**Actual Results:**

   The documentation only shows how to get the ApiDefinition.cs files.

**Expected Results:**

   Complete example end-to-end with a finished DLL.
