Comment (by ryandesign@…):

 Yes, it does. With Xcode 3.1.x and 3.2.x on Snow Leopard, the default
 compiler is Apple gcc42. In Xcode 4.x, the default compiler is llvm-gcc42.
 In Xcode 4.2, Apple removed gcc42. Because Xcode 4 on Snow Leopard was
 paid software, much fewer users use it, so problems like this come up much
 more often, which is why we recommend using Xcode 3.2.6 on Snow Leopard,
 unless you have some other reason to need Xcode 4.2.

 But I do intend to fix this. My Snow Leopard machine is currently busy
 building llvm-gcc42 with Xcode gcc42 to verify that works. Then I'll retry
 with Xcode llvm-gcc42 to verify that fails. Then I'll retry after
 blacklisting Xcode llvm-gcc42 to see what compiler it picks and if it
 builds ok.
