If you are using the 10.5 SDK then that would work is my
understanding. So BJam is going to have to figure out if the user is
specifying an SDK or not and if they are not specifically using an SDK
then intelligently pick one by either guessing based on the current
version of the operating system being used (Probably the best) or
looking in /Developer/SDKs/* and parse out what SDKs are available in
that location.

   And don't forget that on OS X 10.5 the "/Developer" can actually be
anywhere. There is a command line tool that can be used to get the
installation location. On OS X 10.4 and below it was hard coded to /

Hope some of that helps.
