That turned out to be the case because Mac Jenkins Gerrit builds are 
done on a box with an older toolchain than Mac Jenkins tinderbox builds.

That turned out to be due to the tinderbox page apparently not 
necessarily displaying /every/ build, but only operating at a 
granularity of something like 10 min.
