I don't really want to respond to this thread further, other than to state yet again that the cmake port already works correctly, after much laborious work and trial and error. It uses a compiler that correctly compiles the code on the given OS version. I'm not interested in continuing to debate what-ifs about the situation that at best won't change that fact.
