Is Graal JVMCI 8 know to build on macOS 10.13?
It seems there is a problem with some Objective C code that doesn’t compile with MacOSX10.13.sdk.

In the SOMns setup, I used to use a simple script that automatically built Graal JVMCI 8 from source.
But a colleague is now reporting issues with macOS 10.13.

We are using the sources from:

The error is below.

Is this known?

Thank you
