I think as reasonable first step we could just apply Jens' patch.

Second minor tweak would be to have the minimum to be 10.4, instead of 10.3 (as suggested by the macports guys).

Then we can look into additional cc/ld options like what Craig described.

And maybe also add the env $MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET trick to make it easier to hint the minimum, if one wants.  Though as Craig noted, compiling for ancient releases might not actually even work that well.

The thing is, we need older OS X boxes to be able to test this.  Anyone still run PPC?
