Detect Clang availability on Mac based on the SDK, not the OS X version
Since we use the Clang from Xcode's toolchain now, the OS version is not relevant. In practice this means we will use clang for Xcode 4.2 and up, which means it's possible to use clang also on Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard), where Xcode 4.3 is not available.
