No matter how you hate it, you cannot target a new fancy OS version and
expect the result to work on the older versions. I do not know any
operating system with forward compatibility, and MacOS is evidently not an
exception to this rule.

You have to compile to the oldest supported version. This kind of problem
is not unique to MacOS, nor limits to missing functions. We have the same
problem wherever we support multiple versions of the same operating
