Actually, there are a number of other configuration items that are discovered by
compiling small C programs and running them. There are a number of them that
might give different answers on 10.3.9 if they could be compiled there. You
would have to replace that configuration system with something that could load
the configuration from a file or some other source.

Since that's a big project, you might be content with modifying the code to
hard-code the results for your own builds and documenting the differences from
the result of a build from official sources.
