[cfe-dev] libc++ on Mac OS X 10.6

When trying to use libc++ on a trunk clang on Mac OS X 10.6, I get:

/llvm-bin/bin/clang++ temp.cc -stdlib=libc++
clang: error: invalid deployment target for -stdlib=libc++ (requires Mac OS X 10.7 or later)

This used to work on 10.6. Was there a good reason for breaking this on 10.6, and is there any workaround?

I find this disappointing, as I had hoped the next release of clang, with libc++, would provide a good base-line C++0x compiler. However, I would really like not to require 10.7, as I know various people who do not intend to upgrade any time soon.
