The release 7.8.3 bindist for OS X was flawed: It was not build SplitObjs.
That is my fault for not catching it before releasing it. You may demand a
beer from me at ICFP as restitution....

I have built a new 7.8.3 bindist for OS X, and tested in 10.9, 10.7, and
10.6(!). It is SplitObjs, and still performs better than the gcc based

Find it here:

Updated blurb for the release page:

This is a bindist for Mac OS X, 10.6 or later. The package requires the
command line tools package of Xcode 4 or XCode 5 to be installed. You can
find Xcode at http://developer.apple.com/.

If you are installing on a gcc based system (gcc --version doesn't not
include the word "clang"), then then when installing this, use the command make
install CC_CLANG_BACKEND=0).
