I suspect that 'Trimmit' is looking for "bundles": Mac ".app"s are  
actually directories with a prescribed structure:
         Binary executables (universal, ppc, i386, ...)

Since a Unix executable is just a file, it won't pass muster (I'll  
guess that 'Trimmit' uses some of the Apple-provided Frameworks to  
access ".app" structure).
