Note that the part of lldb that needs to be apple code-signed to be convenient for use is only the "debugserver" tool which lives in LLDB.framework/Contents/Resources.  So if you really need to distribute something with lldb libraries you have built yourself, you can just grab the debugserver from an official build and use that.  lldb is expected to be able to work with a variety of debug servers, so that shouldn't cause any problems (short of bugs of course...)

My experience with FOSS gdb (which I managed to get to work on 10.6.8 but not on 10.9) doesn't make me very enthusiastic to experiment with other options ...
