(Our binaries are produced on our buildbot system which is "pristine" because it has no third-party software installed and no MacPorts ports active when each port is built, ensuring there can be no conflicts.)

Does the buildbot system have a machine with ≤10.8.5 building from source using libc++ as PoC of ?
