>>> To make sure I understand: the problem is that, when CFLAGS already contains "-mmacosx-version-min=10.7", the WINE_TRY_CFLAGS() just above doesn't detect that the preloader needs that flag for linking and it's not added to WINEPRELOADER_LDFLAGS, right?

compilation and linking steps. It will resolve to something like:
gcc -o out $CFLAGS $LDFLAGS source.c

While we would need something like:
gcc -c $CFLAGS source.c
gcc -o out $LDFLAGS source.o
