Natively installing Lilypond on MacOS

I use Lilypond for all my music engraving. I am also an avid Apple user. The official compiled Lilypond package for the MacOS target is 32-bit; this will become a problem in the next major version of MacOS, which will no longer support 32-bit binaries. The Lilypond development team is aware of this limitation, but they are currently wrestling with their cross-platform build framework (GUB, or Grand Unified Builder) and cannot directly address this issue at the moment.
