Likewise I don't think keeping support for 7 in the tree is burdensome, indeed the size of the below patch is rather small.  If someone accidentally breaks support for 6 or 7, it usually is trivial to get it to work again.  So, for example, the recent patches to rip out -lm, those should be inside a target os conditional of 10.4 or later.  If that were missing, should be trivial to add it.  I just don't see the value in removing what amounts to a single line to support darwin7.

Mike,
    According to...

http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=42825

darwin7 may be currently broken. I'll repost my add-on remove-outfile patch
with a conditional on 10.4 or later shortly.
