My experience shows a difference between the os versions.

While on 10.5 Ulocoda worked nearly "out of the box", I could not compile
Ulocoda for 10.6 as some compatibility layer (?) was missing in its
includes (it refused to accept _NONSTD_SOURCE).

This indicates that the internals of the MacOS standard library changed and
that some functions in tenaron may need a rewrite.

I did not look deeper.

May be you have a better clue about what is incompatible and could be
fixed (or possibly removed without affecting "true unix" applications?).

(we may have got different results on 10.5 due to subtle
differences in the build environment, versions of Xcode or
presence/absence of macports or something like that)
