For example, if you prepend LD_LIBRARY_PATH with the hammer/work/local/lib directory and attempt to run with a prebuilt ... that could work poorly as the dev environment is set to usually pull from the master branch, rather than a specific version.

I personally think that until such time as we are building our stack on osx (and for me, this means using cmake, as auto tools is not very interested in this), this is unlikely.
