I think the correct solution is indeed to let the installed "Lazarus.app" start
the startlazarus binary. That will then take care of the rest.

Any idea how I can accomplish this myself ? 
I tried setting the symbolic link 'lazarus' in /Application/Lazarus.app/Contents/MacOS 
to ../../../startlazarus, but that does not seem to be enough.

I get strange effects, that's the least I can say :-)
