Building upstream libc++ for 10.6 is not really supported from what I 
can tell, so we would have to use an older libc++ that still supported 
it. Also, the Xcode toolchain's clang has a hard-coded check that you're 
targeting 10.7+ if you're using libc++, so you'd have to use upstream 
llvm without the check as well :/

So perhaps possible, but not really practical AFAICT.
