Could you guys and girls start building the Mac version for 64-bit?

Xcode and the various Mac compilers have supported 64-bit for a decade, and 2019's version of macOS is going to drop 32-bit support. In fact, the first time you play Stepmania on the macOS 10.14 ("Mojave"), you get a warning that the developer needs to update the app.
FWIW, I tried to solve my own problem by building from source, but the Mac build is broken (at least on my machine, running macOS 10.14 and Xcode 10). The ogg and vorbis targets fail, apparently because they depend on a long-gone version of the C++ standard libraries.

Moving up to a more recent minimum OS version doesn't help, but it's probably worth considering if it fixes any other problems. 10.7 is eight years old at this point… very few Macs will still be running it.

I might poke at this a little bit to see if I can get it happy, but I'm pretty busy ATM and not familiar with CMake so… don't count on it? Sorry.
