I am having a Linux-Source which expects files in ./ relative to its executable... in order to change as little as possible I want to set working dir of my bundle to /.../mybundle.app/Resources.

Thank you!

Use the CFBundle APIs to determine the location of the bundle's Resources directory:
Specifically, CFBundleGetMainBundle() and CFBundleCopyResourcesDirectoryURL().
http://developer.apple.com/documentation/CoreFoundation/Reference/CFBundleRef/index.html

Use CFURLGetFileSystemRepresentation() to convert the returned URL to a file system path.
http://developer.apple.com/documentation/CoreFoundation/Reference/CFURLRef/Reference/function_group_3.html

Use chdir() to set the current working directory for the benefit of your ported Linux code.
man 2 chdir

No, CoreFoundation is ANSI C.
