Just as a confirmation, this did affect OSX when I tested it, causing a crash for the same reason. The partial-availability flag also fixes it for OSX.

This sounds like something we should try to automate and incorporate into the configure script for the sake of other iOS and macOS users, shouldn't we?

Yes, ideally.

-Werror=partial-availability is probably safe to add by default (if the compiler supports it), since it matches how configure checks are used - if a function is available and can be linked, we're free to use it.

But then we also need to make sure the user sets a sensible -mmacosx-version-min or -miphoneos-version-min, which hasn't been quite necessary so far. Or do OSX users generally set those whenever building things? Should configure warn if they aren't set - or set a sensible default low version if it isn't? Given the number of current and legacy systems that one can build it for, picking a sensible default is a bit tricky.
