They're inside the app bundle for /Applications/

You keep an older machine around :( Apple has explicitly de-supported
developing for them and no longer provides the SDKs etc.

Some people have had success copying the SDKs from older Xcode versions,
but potentially this can still leave you unable to convince ld to produce
objects that will work on the older systems.
