/me hides, no I didn't though I did google _environ to see what that was.
Apparently there's some definition in unistd.h but including it isn't
required on some platform. Not sure if that applies here or not.

Yeah, I'm using clang from Xcode. cmake.log says it's AppleClang

I thought it was a 64 bit machine, when it had snow leopard it was 64 bit I
thought, apparently it isn't though. uname -a is showing i386 :/ I know
this machine (Macbook 4,1) is only upgradable to Lion because it only has
32 bit drivers for video, but I didn't think the whole os was 32 bit, maybe
I got the wrong installer or something somehow?
