I think we should not put too much effort into avoiding warning on 10.6. This is a very old version, does not receive security fixes and for the protection of users, should not be encouraging use of 10.6. IOW if your running 10.6, expect you will see warnings for things which have been added since and which are not supported on that platform.

Unfortunately it doesn’t fix our immediate issue, which is that
setTabbingMode should be called on 10.12, but emacsformacosx.com
builds on 10.9.

I think you’re definitely right, though, that we’re not going to be
able to come up with a uniform solution. Something has to give
somewhere, and I’m tempted to say it should be 10.6. We could live
with build warnings on 10.6, or just say that code like the above
should be ifdef’d out on 10.6.

Or perhaps we provide a flag that enables a universal binary build
that doesn’t bother about hiding the warnings?

I suppose that would look like:

    ./configure --with-ns --universal-binary

    #ifdef NS_IMPL_COCOA
        || defined (UNIVERSAL_BINARY)
    if ([win respondsToSelector: @selector(setTabbingMode)])
      [win setTabbingMode: NSWindowTabbingModeDisallowed];
