I don't think new contributors should endorse this time, or
the time to rewrite iOS build system.

Actually I don't, I have this patch.

Are you suggesting you would rewrite the build system for iOS?
Or maybe you have a better way to compile for it? Please share
if so, it would be a better argument than telling me what I'm
doing. I recall that you didn't care about this platform but
maybe things have changed since that time.

I personnally can't spent that time and I'm just sharing what
I did to workaround the issue.
