Wine was using the function for a long time but was avoided on macOS up
until wine-5.8 when the old buildbot was taken out of commission.

With how much of a PITA it is setting up a build environment for compiling
wine on MacOSX10.8/10.9 I’d leave this as not our problem, it’s simply a
matter of using the replacement library to fill in the gaps avoiding even
needing a newer SDK.
