"puredarwin" is a MacPorts variant that means "Darwin without Carbon"
- such as Darwin OS.
"macosx" is a similar MacPorts variant that means "Darwin with
Carbon" - such as Mac OS X.
The platform variant "darwin" would be set for both of them, as both
have uname == "Darwin".
I think software is supposed to look for specific libraries/
frameworks, instead of assume ?
