As I said, there is no need to update the system libc++ on systems that already have it; `port:libcxx` can (could) provide a set of libraries under ${prefix} that override the system ones for dependent ports, just like any other port that provides newer versions of what's also provided by Apple.
This carries the same amount of risk as comes with those other ports (port:zlib, for instance...)

Yeah, sure. Let's see before I download the 10.15 installer, oh, wait, my hardware will only upgrade to 10.13 (officially).

Guess why I'm migrating away from Macs ...
