> What's symbols.mak, why hasn't that been needed before? The commit message talks about setting things (variables?) via makefiles instead of environment variables - I would expect it to be things like CC for the cross target and such, but then the commit tries to override autotools detections?

Hi Martin,

Yes this is correct, we override those auto-tools detections, as those are symbols not available on the minimal appleOS version we build for. Autotools is not able to detect this, therefore we need to maintain this list manually at the moment.

Best regards,
