Hmm, although I just checked on our OS X test box (which has the
command-line tools installed, not full XCode) and it seems that the
/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/Toolchains directory doesn't exist.
Presumably this is a (rather unfortunate) difference between full XCode
and the command-line package. Do you know whether there is some advice
that we might be able to offer that will work in both cases?

If not I suspect we should just go with your suggestion; the full-XCode
case is the far more likely of the two.
