The program in question is LTspiceXVII, of which a Mac version is 
existing. Only the Mac version has a totally different GUI.
The Windows version under Wine has some issues with event handling. Some 
glitches. I just was wondering whether this could be overcome by using a 
newer Wine version. The current one, installed with Homebrew, is 4.1_0 
(while a Linux version is 4.7 someone told me).

Using an old version of Xcode would probably out of any discussion.
