Build failure on OS X 10.6.8

Reported by: woodruffw Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: someday
Component: build system Version: 4.9.x
Keywords: build, make, osx, mac Cc:
Estimated difficulty: medium


In, Chicken's OS X makefile attempts to locate XCode's tool path and development utilities (ar, gcc) in /Applications/ However, in earlier versions of OS X limited to older versions of XCode, XCode's toolchain is stored in /Developer/usr/bin. As a result, the makefile can't locate ar or cc.

I don't know that much about the syntax of makefiles, but the solution to this is to check for OS X's version number and set the XCODE_DEVELOPER and XCODE_TOOL_PATH variables in makefile.macosx differently if the version is below 10.7.x.
