The cctools-576 are an older version of cctools, that work around a problem in Xcode/Projectbuilder 
1. My website says

	Unless you have installled Xcode 2.x or 3.x, you have to update Apple's Mac OS X assembler and 
linker (cctools-576). Click here to download sources (1.4 MB) and binaries (1.7 MB).

So, forget about them for Xcode 2, 3 or 4.

Although they install a linker and assembler, some extra files are needed to assemble and link with 
success. It is rather clumsy to have to install all of Xcode for just those few files, but I can't 
help it, that's Apple politics.
