I noticed that usually when building packages on darwin with SDK 11, there will often be a message like:
warning: 'futimens' is only available on macOS 10.13 or newer [-Wunguarded-availability-new] note: 'futimens' has been marked as being introduced in macOS 10.13 here, but the deployment target is macOS 10.12.0
So ok, I know what it means, but it I’m confused why does it appear for packages built with
darwin.apple_sdk_11_0.callPackage. Since we already require the later functionality, why isn’t that propagated to
-mmacosx-version-min as well? (it’s mentioned as done for 10.12 in Nixpkgs macOS Stdenv Updates )
I was hoping someone has a good answer before I put on scuba gear and dive into the
pkgs/os-specific/darwin where this happens:
pkgs/os-specific/darwin/cctools/apple.nix 31: "MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.12"
apple_sdk_11_0 doesn’t override it?
