Agreed, let's drop 10.5. I don't want to fix that bug given it's likely customer base...

And we do appreciate your breakage! :-)

I think we'll just drop 10.5 from the list as that's very old and likely not worth fixing

Ralph,

I can build fine on 10.7 (the system I am typing on now), and on 10.6 too.

I have no strong opinion on fix-vs-document, but as Jeff knows quite well if you say you support it I am going to try to make it break :).

I dunno if we really go back that far, Paul - I doubt anyone has tested on anything less than 10.8, frankly. Might be better if we update to not make claims that far back.

Were you able to build/run on 10.7?

As I noted in another email, 1.7.4's README claims support for Mac OSX versions 10.5 through 10.7. So, I just now tried (but failed) to build on 10.5 (Leopard):

The same failure is seen on a PPC system running OSX Leopard, too. However, I figure it best to focus on getting x86 working first before worrying any about PPC.

The only configure option used was --prefix.
The bzip2-compressed config.log is attached.
