question about OpenSCAD 2015.03 on Snow Leopard, and a home-built libc++ package installer

Although the developers of OpenSCAD had to leave Snow Leopard behind a couple of version ago, using Macports and the extended abilities that Jeremy has enabled for older systems, I have been able to compile a version of the latest release of OpenSCAD 2015.03 that runs well on 10.6.8, with some modest surgery on the build process along the way to get over humps.

I think this is a great tribute to the work put into this effort by Jeremy and others.

To make it a simple thing to install, I made a package installer for libc++ and libc++abi to use on SL, and bundled all the macports-compiled dylibs into the app bundle.

You can have a look at it here if you like; the libc++ package installer is included:

OpenSCAD 2015.03 for MacOSX 10.6.8

Questions -- 

1. Are there any issues with releasing this to the OpenSCAD community?

2. Any issues/ concerns / suggestions with the libc++ / libc++ABI package installer that anyone doesn't like? Right now, the package installer is supposed to only run on SL, and will overwrite an existing libc++ and libc++ABI library if there is one (but there's only one version, at the moment, so that would not seem to be a big issue).
