Considering that almost nobody in the libvirt community is actually
focused on macOS support, trying to chase after two SDKs instead of
a single one doesn't necessarily sound like a good idea to me,
especially when the older one doesn't target the current version of

It's already pretty bad that we're stuck on 10.14, as opposed to
10.15 which is the version we actually target according to our
platform support policy, because Travis CI always takes forever to
prepare new images.

I was looking into Cirrus CI the other day and they support macOS
too, and they even already have a 10.15 image. I didn't dig deeper,
but maybe if we're stuck using an external service for macOS builds
it should be Cirrus CI instead of Travis CI.
