I think you should re-consider this comment: "The other option is ditching
LilyPad and doing a Darwin-only version of LilyPond, assuming that we can
do this with suitably free components.", by David Kastrup. I don't think
many people are using the limited editor LilyPad. There are a lot of better
tools available (Frescobaldi). I'd rather have a native LilyPond without
the *Pad, than having to compile it myself or rely on a Docker solution.

Apple switched off support for old 32 bit applications years ago. I'm
surprised that there still isn't a 64bit Mac version of Lilypond. In the
meantime, Apple has released their own silicon (the M1 processor), so I
guess you should also be working on a version that runs on that hardware.

I know there are work arounds, like unofficial builds (but those are
outdated) and running Lilypond via Docker (but that's cumbersome). Those
can only be used as temporary work arounds.

Use MacPorts to build it.  It works very nice.
