Is the reason why you did not submit your bonus patch [*1*] in the series at

because it goes the opposite way, i.e. "build and test with whatever
happens to be in the image"?

Unless what happens to come in the image at is
hopelessly outdated and does not match what normal users run, isn't
it is better to test with "whatever happens to be there" than not to
test at all due to missing compiler?


*1* ... what I picked up from your branch reproduced here

It is missing explanation and sign-off, but if it lets the build
jobs run, even in a tad stale environment, it may be worth
resurrecting until those who want macOS port working can come up
with a real "with the latest and greatest" alternative.
