Ok so with the death knell for MAME on MacOS 10.7 looming ahead..
I scrapped my Macports stuff awhile ago and switched over to Homebrew, just checked and it appears Homebrew does in fact have GCC 5.3 available (Im in the middle of installing it so hopefully it actually works). Is installing this enough to keep up for those of us that cant run out and buy a newer Mac? Im assuming there is a way I can point MAME to use GCC 5.3 either by some sort of config flag, or putting the directory Brew installs its executables in first in my PATH? I dont really know too much about Clang or how its tied into Mac OS X, but from a bunch of the Google results I found looking it up, Ive seen various ways to point to the newer GCC versions, however the one surefire way I saw was looking at a program that actually used a configure script which is where the variables were used to point to it. And obviously MAME doesnt have a ./configure step to it.
