Anyway, this doesn't work well with SDKs, but having it work without SDK support is better than having it not work.  If someone cared more, they could enhance version-compare to work better...

Mike,
   I'm still confused about the potential SDK breakage. Looking at...

http://books.google.com/books?id=09xjqE4nvqAC&pg=PA218&lpg=PA218&dq=10.3+libSystem+symlinks&source=bl&ots=e0IbeKedng&sig=iuu7LIX63QxWYuGvSKWTBhA6iIk&hl=en&ei=T5lwTODKLYT78AagsrG8Cw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=7&ved=0CCoQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q&f=false

for Panther, I see libSystem described as containing libc, libinfo, libkvm, libpoll, libpthreadm, librpcsvc,
libdbm and libdl which are provided as symlinks to libSystem (page 217). So only building for the
10.2 (darwin6) SDK would be an issue. Putting darwin6 out of its misery would solve that issue and frankly
building for the 10.2 SDK under 10.3 in the early 21st century is rather a geek trick.
            Jack
