Having a 64bit clang cross-compiler starting with ESR24 hopefully soon lets us envision a not so distant future where we could use that to produce 64bit TBBs for Mac OS X.

It appears that the malloc replacement feature (#10281) on OSX requires 64 bit Mac OSX builds. I'm not certain, but that's my take on it from this line in where I'm erroring here.

Because mikeperry's blog post vaguely mentions that OSX builds will be 64-bit "soon", we decided in today's TBB meeting to aim for switching by the TBB-4.5 release (but not necessarily the first alpha).

Tom reported that their patches rebased onto ESR31 nicely, and that they'd have a branch pushed to Github soon.
