Karl has summarized the problem nicely. If it's okay to use /usr/bin/sw_vers
to determine version, pseudocode like this would work:

if sw_vers -productVersion |grep 10\.[0-6] ; then
        # use existing code
        # platform is darwin-x86_64; don't bother invoking cc

$ sw_vers -productVersion

Alternately, uname -r could be used, but I'm not sure of the darwin version
numbering off the top of my head.
