Re: Is support for 10.8 dropped?

Hi, Eric,
First of, I already have Xcode installed along with the Developer Tools.
Second, here is the list of the different dylib files I found on my system:

MyMac:/ igorkorot$ find . -name libSystem.B.dylib

I'm hoping that the dylib in the MacOSX10.9 directory does have that
symbol and maybe if I can check I can export this directory and let
the linker pick it up.

And apparently I was wrong:

MyMac:/ igorkorot$ nm -gU
| grep strlcpy
MyMac:/ igorkorot$ nm -gU
| grep strlcpy
MyMac:/ igorkorot$

I can try to build from source as this becomes my last resort. ;-)

Thank you.
