Perhaps the right solution is to totally get rid of the mac sysroot
stanzas.  In pkgsrc, the wrapper scripts should take care of this, and
fairly clearly do so for almost all programs (because they build!)

So you are saying this is built into autoconf defaults?

What I meant is that if you build on a 10.9 mac, then by default you get
binaries that work on 10.10 and not on 10.9.  To get binaries you can
run you have to give a non-default option.  That seems broken (of the
mac, not about pkgsrc); obviously the default behavior should result in
programs that can be run on the build system.

It might be a good idea to work around this in bootstrap.  The trick
would be to see what versions of the SDK are available and the current
OS version, and find the sdk version that matches.  But I think this is
a separable issue from the build problem you are reporting.
