The "official" binaries are indeed available for 10.6 and they were
compiled with the default compiler:

I can confirm that tk +quartz compiles fine for me on 10.7, but not on
10.6 (not even with clang 3.4, I didn't test with 3.7).

I don't find a ticket in the tracker, so feel free to open one. The
closest one I found was
but that one is ancient and most likely unrelated.
