> Ah, no, that's a common misconception.  There is a different setting called "deployment target" that decides the oldest version of the OS that binaries will run on.  It's called "CMAKE_OSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET" in cmake.  So it's perfectly OK to use Xcode 8 with its 10.12 SDK but with deployment target set to say 10.9.  Then your binary will work on >= 10.9.  It's a much better choice than hacking your Xcode.
We should take a look at that then, I was still under the impression
we needed to hack our XCode. I will leave it in place for now, and see
what happens.
