Ah, the unlucky 2%.
C'est la vie.
Such problems are generally always fixable, the equation being time vs benefit...

Upgrading to a Sierra machine is always the path of least resistance, if that is in your horizon. Nonetheless, there is _usually_ a way to keep your 10.7 machine running with _most_ open source software. No guarantees, though.

If it does not work, then the next option is a wholesale change to libc++, which I did in the end, and I think that works the best. But there is currently no libc++ buildbot, so you'll have to build *everything*. That will take several days (and is also not guaranteed to work).
