You could hack configure to disable that check and try a slightly newer 
xcode. Maybe 5.x or 6.x works well enough. It's likely that you then 
also need to add --disable-warnings-as-errors to configure. You could 
also try installing an older Macos as a virtual machine on your current 
mac. Note though that the licensing around that is unclear.
