If you're on a Mac, I'm pretty sure OS X will fix that problem. That's due

My opinion only: the difficulty of producing cross-platform
build/config/install tools with earlier versions of MacOS is so great as to
justify limiting support to OS X unless someone steps up and is willing to
make customized tools for earlier versions.
